In Nursing, it is essential to recognize in the person with drug addiction the manifestations of active use of any substance in order to work on the addiction itself

Nursing must recognize in what state the patient is in regarding the preparation and acceptance of their drug problem (insight) and assess in any case if they are willing to make the change; not forgetting that there is a percentage of patients who do not want to stop using drugs, and want to actively maintain their consumption.

In any case, we must recognize, be able to approach and actively accompany the user of these substances.
