NRNP 6640-14 Psychotherapy for Addictive Disorders

“A long-standing debate has roiled over whether addicts have a choice over their
behaviors. The disease creates distortions in thinking, feelings, and perceptions, which
drive people to behave in ways that are not understandable to others around them. Simply
put, addiction is not a choice. Addictive behaviors are a manifestation of the disease, not a
cause."
–Dr. Raju Hajela, former president of the Canadian Society of Addiction Medicine
A common misconception is that addiction is a choice, and addicts are often labeled as
individuals who lack morals, willpower, or responsibility. However, addiction is a clinical
disorder that must be treated with the support of a health care professional. Although
many people who are exposed to potentially addictive substances and behaviors continue
life unaltered by their experiences, some people are fueled by these experiences and spiral
out of control. In your role as the psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner, you must be
prepared to not only work with these individuals who struggle with addiction, but also help
them and their families overcome the social stigmas associated with addictive behavior.
This week, as you explore psychotherapy for addiction, you assess clients presenting with
addictive disorders. You also examine therapies for treating these clients and consider
potential outcomes.
