Abstract [en]

This commentary discusses some prerequisites for and potential changes in drug user participation in treatment, decision-making, and policy in Sweden. What possibilities and obstacles are there for drug users to serve as social change agents? To what extent are drug users able to bring about change in social organizations and institutions—changes that are beneficial from their point of view?
