This report is based on research done by Volda University College (VUC), in cooperation with Zanzibar Recovery Community (ZRC), and dialogue with leaders of The Drug Control Commission in Zanzibar. Data collection was done during autumn 2019. Responsible for this study from Volda University College has been Associate Professor Jarle Pedersen (Ph.D. in Sociology), assisted by Associate Professor Ingun Klepp (MA Social Anthropology). Our interest as researchers from VUC in this project is linked to our cooperation with ZRC according internship for our social work students in sober house in Zanzibar. Since 2015 VUC students have spent 14 weeks every year in sober houses as a part of their practical training as social workers. From Zanzibar Recovery Community the responsible persons have been the President of ZRC Suleiman Mauly and General Secretary of ZRC Abdulrahman Abdullah. VUC is fully responsible for the final design, data collection, analysis, and development of the thesis, but without the support of ZRC on design, preparation, access to informants, and coordination, this project would not have been possible. It would also be impossible without the excellent efforts of all the informants who have shared their individual stories and contributed with necessary information during this research.
