With this, the researchers predict that the process of educating nurses about addiction and viewing interventions should be regarded as compassionate peer support and not as confrontations. Meanwhile, the researchers have presented the case for the efficacy of the therapeutic approach that represents barriers that prevent colleagues in reporting the problem, which is similar to the approach and tools used by Monroe and Kenaga (2010).

This article pronounces addiction in the general population and in the nursing population, revealing the reasons behind the act, as well as the signs and symptoms of drug addiction. With this, the researcher suggests the need to report an impaired nurse, since they carry an ethical and legal obligation to report colleagues who, in one way or another, could harm their patients, even if they share the same working environment in the medical industry. Meanwhile, the researchers have presented the case for the efficacy of the therapeutic approach that represent ethical and legal obligation that nurses and other employees should carry. This is similar to the approach used by other researchers, such as Dunn (2005), Naegle (2006), the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (2011), and Shaw et al.
