This study investigates transformative learning process among former drug addicts who are completely free from addiction in Petaling Jaya, Selangor. Transformative learning process within the context of drug addiction is not well researched compared to other studies. In Malaysia, researchers focus on causes factors, prevention, treatment and recovery process for drug addiction. Within Western context, the studies are more on the transformative learning for individual who are recovering from drug addiction not on the transformative learning process. Five objectives of this study such as trigger events, critical reflection, dialogue, factor of perspective transformation and effect of perspective transformation were identified and studied in order to understand and explore the perspective transformation process that occurs among former drug addicts. The research employed a qualitative case study and phenomenology approach. A total of fifteen participants comprised of former drug addicts, Agensi AntiDadah Kebangsaan (AADK) officer, counselor and peer advisors were selected using purposive sampling. Semi structured interview, documents analysis and roundtable discussion method were used as data collection. The data were analysed manually using phenomenological data analysis method. A key finding is that former drug addicts experiences transformative learning process via recursive, integrated events. In addition, multiple reflection and dialogue are found to have assisted the process of perspective transformation that occurred in three waves, six phases and twelve phases which affected the cognitive, emotional, behaviour and spiritual of the former drug addicts. Theoretically, this study contributes towards a better understanding of the flow of the recovery process for the former drug addicts using the model of perspective transformation process. Practically, this study help practitioners such as HRD to have better understanding of the transformative learning for adults and AADK to help drug addicts in the recovering process. For future research it is recommended to focus on the element of spirituality from all religion in Malaysia and critical reflection of transformative learning in order to have an alternative understanding of how critical reflection can help former drug addicts to recover from their addiction.
