Abstract

The recovery period is one of the phases that ex-drug users have to go through where in addition to having to withstand physical side effects due to substance use termination, former drug users are also faced with inner turmoil that makes them have to fight against desires that can damage the healing process, like the desire to return to using drugs (relapse) to relieve physical pain. When a former drug user has a tendency to self-forgive and make peace with himself, then it is likely to relieve psychological stress when the healing phase will increase. This study uses a qualitative approach with a case study research model. Research subjects were former drug users who knew drugs since college, using only when they felt frustrated and deeply sad, and decided to stop using drugs for one year. Data validation is done by using triangulation. The results showed that the subject had gone through all stages of self-forgiveness well. Subjects began to improve several important aspects of their lives, such as work, diet and lifestyle. Findings in the study, subjects showed interest in learning religion better.
