BOTES, Jacques  e  SCHENCK, Rinie. "If a person uses alcohol the real you comes out": Exploring the self, sexual experiences and substance abuse. Social work (Stellenbosch. Online) [online]. 2015, vol.51, n.1, pp.101-114. ISSN 2312-7198.

The article aims to describe the role substances play in relation to the experiences of the self and sexual behaviour of the substance users, which may be of significance for the rehabilitation process. Based on Carl Rogers's person-centred approach, semi-structured interviews were conducted with a voluntary sample of seven participants in a treatment centre in Pretoria, South Africa. The findings suggest that the use of substances assists the individual in relieving psychological tensions and to experience euphoric sexual encounters in the process in a way that is congruent with the self-perception. These aspects needs to be taken into consideration in the treatment regimen.
