I am in need of some advice. I am doing my nusing care plan on a woman that has chronic back pain and in the process she has now become addicted to opiaites. She takes a high dose of morphine, fentanyl and hydrocodone on a daily basis to deal with the pain. She is only coming to detox because family members have threaten to CPS to take her children away because of the substance abuse. I was thinking of using the following nursing diagnosis..
Ineffective individual coping r/t inadequate level of confidence in ability to cope with chronic pain AEB abuse of substances.
Any suggestions would be great!
