My classmates response: The peer reviewed article of choice is, ” Drug abuse staff and clients smoking together: A shared
addiction.” This article was found in the Journal of Substance Abuse Treatment and retrieved from
the Walden University library. The article was among thousands of articles that came up when I
searched for a “peer reviewed” article and I chose it because this is one of the big issues facing the
country (mental health). Though my search was on “peer review”, the article was showing tobacco,
nicotine, drug treatment and policy as the keywords used for their search.
“Scholarly or peer-reviewed journal articles are written by scholars or professionals who are experts
in their fields. In the sciences and social sciences, they often publish research results.” (Cornell
This article was based on the practice of clients and employees of drug-abused treatment
centers smoking together. The survey showed that where smoking together was higher, the clients
received fewer tobacco services and clients have lower intention to quit smoking. The general
conclusion was that the practice should end, in the interest of client health.
Reading through the body of the article, I was not sure of the stand of the author, whether in
support of the practice or against it. It is a big challenge trying to educate the educators (nurses and
healthcare workers) that they need to practice what they preach by not smoking; but to actually be
smoking 1:1 with the patient is belittling ourselves and the profession. How can we in all honesty
advise patient on their health when we are guilty of the same?
