Abstract
The article discusses the problem of receiving governmental support by individuals involved in substance abuse. The study was conducted as a part of a regional project funded by the Estonian Ministry of Social Affairs. The demand study for social, psychological and legal assistance was conducted in the course of work with individuals who use drugs and applied for legal assistance to solve difficult living situations. The main driver for seeking help and the difficulties associated with receiving/refusing help are analyzed. The majority of the respondents are disabled and need social assistance. Assisting families of drug addicts with a criminal record is a peculiar problem. A series of data related to the health status of drug addicts, to the special personality traits and emotional condition was obtained. Reasons for applying for legal and medical assistance are identified.

Keywords: drug addicts, legal assistance, health, emotional state, social support.
