|Abstract:||Research about the dark side of occupations is needed to conceptualise the complex and multidimensional nature of occupation. Addiction, as a worldwide phenomenon, has been investigated through occupational perspectives. However, there is limited research about how far occupational science and occupational therapy have considered addiction in relation to occupation. A critical realist scoping review of the current occupational science and occupational therapy literature was conducted. The study applied the methodological framework from Arksey and O’Malley (2005). The human subsystems were used as a lens to evaluate the findings. 25 articles were identified, and the data could be allocated to all subsystems. The findings revealed that negative and positive aspects of addiction occur simultaneously but with negative impacts tending to dominate where addiction grows. As research has proved before, addiction can be labelled as an occupation (Kiepek & Magalhães, 2011; Wasmuth et al., 2014). The analysis through the subsystems has shown that overtime, addiction can become an ‘overtaking occupation’ consuming all time, energy and resources. The subsystems were appropriate for analysing addiction and have reviewed new insights. Further research about its usability in research for exploring occupation is recommended. An investigation of the scope of every subsystem is needed to improve its applicability. Labelling occupation as neither solely positive nor negative is central to open the view for non-western perspectives and investigate occupations’ complex relation to health. This study proposed that the newly identified concept of an ‘overtaking occupation’ can help inform occupational strategies to support people with addiction related challenges.|
