  • Forskningsgruppen «Rus, familie og nære andre (RUFA) har fokus på livssituasjonen til personer med rusmiddelproblemer og nære andre (familie og andre nære relasjoner). I dette ligger både negative konsekvenser for omgivelsene knyttet til rusmiddelavhengighet, men også til andre former for rusbruk som også gir skadelige konsekvenser for andre enn brukeren selv.
  • Forskningen vil omfatte de utfordringene rusmiddelproblemer gir både personlig og i et bredt biopsykososialt perspektiv
  • Ikke minst vil forskningen i tillegg omhandle hva som skal til for at rusmiddelbrukere, familie og nære andre kan oppleve mestring og få en bedre livssituasjon.
