Abstract

Drug abuse is one of the most threatening issues of human life today as a result of lifestyle changes that make individuals susceptible to psychological problems. Resilience is necessary in order to prevent individuals from using drugs and relapse. The purpose of this study was to find out how is the image of resilience in former cannabis users in early adulthood. The research approach used is qualitative with case study techniques. The subjects of the study is a former cannabis user in early adulthood age, who has stopped using drugs for 2 years, and is living in Malang. The validity check of the data findings is done by using the informant. The results showed that subject generally had a fairly good resilience after quitting cannabis. His resilience was formed by his knowledge about the effects of using cannabis on health, and he has a strong self-discipline although sometimes in some ways it is easily influenced by others. Several risk factors that may affect the resilience of former cannabis users in this study are that they are not able to control their emotions well so when they are faced with a problem, they often show an emotional coping strategy that tends to be difficult in making decisions appropriately.
