Data from the participants in this study were collected using a case study approach. A case study is usually a descriptive observation qualitative research method that focuses on evaluating and or investigating a phenomenon in real-life situations (Hennink, Hutter & Bailey, 2020). In the study, data or information from the participants were collected using various tools and approaches. Primary tools of data collection were both structured and unstructured interviews. The choosing of these two tools was informed by the study design, which focuses on obtaining detailed information about a phenomenon which, in this case, was the experience of the youths who abuse drugs and substance. The sampled group reported being using cannabis and other opioids on many occasions. Therefore, the objective of this case study was to evaluate the real-life experiences of the youth when they were using drugs.
