The data were collected by interviewing the employees and cooperation partners of the Jyväskylä Street Mission as well as people with substance abuse problems for whom the Street Mission had provided housing or employment. The aim of the study was to chart the experiences of both the helpers and the helped, and to canvass themes such as future expectations, social relationships, life history, Christianity, intoxicants, participating in various activities, and peer support.

The dataset is only available in Finnish.
