Abstract/Summary

This study was conducted to investigate perceived social support and spiritual maturity as predictors of subjective well-being among drug users in rehabilitation centers in Indonesia. There were 90 male young adult drug users from three private drug rehabilitation centers, and one from the government institution across Yogyakarta, Bogor, and West Java who participated in the study. This study has a sequential explanatory mixed method design using multiple linear regression analysis to evaluate if perceived social support and spiritual maturity are predictors of the subjective well-being of drug users in rehabilitation centers in Indonesia. Also, this research was supported by case studies based on semi-structured interviews of 10 participants. The study utilized the Multidimensional Scale of Perceived Social Support (MSPSS), The Spiritual Experience Index-Revised (SEI), and the Concise Measure of Subjective Well-Being (COMOSWB). Findings revealed that perceived social support significantly predicts the subjective well-being of young adult drug users in rehabilitation centers in Indonesia, with p value of 0.027 (p value < 0.05). However, spiritual experience in the context of prayer experience and spiritual openness (meditation) is not a predicted for this study due to the p value of 0.224 (p value > 0.05). Still, qualitative data results showed that both perceived social support and spiritual experience were considered by the participants as important contributing factors to the subjective well-being of young adult drug users in drug rehabilitation centers in Indonesia.
