Description

This project seeks to build on a small British Academy funded exploratory sociological study that is investigating men and women’s experiences of sleep during their stay in residential rehabilitation settings. Thirty participants in recovery from dependence on alcohol and other drugs, wear an actiwatch (that measures movement as a proxy for sleep) over a two week period, keep a sleep diary, and are then interviewed about their experiences of sleep. Sleep appears to improve during the participants residential stay, however they are
anxious as to how they might maintain their sleep when they return to community and to less structured social environments. We have the scope (but not resource) to follow up a subsample of the participants once they return ‘home’ to gather longitudinal data to explore how they manage this transition. The service provider secures agreement from all their residents that they can be contacted for further research.
