The latest discussion from the Qualitative Methods Journal Club (QMJC) is now available online, focusing on the way people who use drugs talk about their substance use and construct their senses of ‘self’.

The study discussed at the February meeting of the Qualitative Methods Journal Club was based on the lived experiences of people who use drugs in rural Ohio. It examined the way they talked about their substance use, including their “linguistic choices” and representation of the concept of “addiction”.
