Which of the following should the nurse plan to include when teaching the client and family about a substance abuse problem?
1. The role of the family in perpetuating the problem.
2. The family’s responsibility for the client.
3. The physical, physiologic, and psychological effects of substances.
4. The reasons that could have led the client to use the substance.
The nurse should include teaching the client and family about the physical, physiologic, and psychological effects of substances to educate them about the potential injury, illness, and disability that can result from substance use.
Teaching about the role of the family in perpetuating the problem, the family’s responsibility for the client, or the reasons that could have led theclient to use the substance is inappropriate and based on an erroneous assumption. Including these topics blames the family for the problem and attempts to rationalize the use of the substance.
