    Abstract

    In my diploma thesis I deal with phenomena and characteristics relating to the use of illegal drugs and alcohol in residential treatment institutions. My main focus was on young people residing in secondary school educational institutions. In the theoretical introduction, I treated the general problematic of drug and alcohol use among young people in the recent period within the framework of residential treatment institutions in Slovenia. I focused on the measures taken by residential treatment institutions regarding drug and alcohol use and on potential solutions in this area. I based my empirical part on theory, as I wanted to make a connection between the needs of young people and the services offered by the system of residential treatment institutions. In the empirical part, I used a qualitative methodology, where I implemented the use of interviews to conduct my research of focus groups. These focus groups included youngsters who reside in secondary school residential treatment institutions. In this research, I strove to identify the characteristics of drug use in educational institutions and the risks of drug and alcohol use perceived by young people in these institutions. My interest was focused on the type of measures taken by institutions regarding drug and alcohol use and what kind of help these institutions offer young people who have problems in this area. As an addition to my research, I conducted interviews with counsellors working in individual institutions and with the head of counselling in the organization DrogArt. I interpreted the statements made by students and drew a correlation with the answers given by the counselling service and the head of counselling, in order to make a connection between the help sought after by young people and the services and measures taken by residential treatment institutions. In the final part of the thesis, I summarized my findings and in the conclusion proposed my own recommendations and possible solutions that may be considered in the future.
