WANDEKOKEN, Kallen Dettmann  and  SIQUEIRA, Marluce Miguel de. Implementation of the Nursing Process to a crack user based on Betty Neuman model. Rev. bras. enferm. [online]. 2014, vol.67, n.1, pp.62-70. ISSN 0034-7167.

The objective was to propose a care strategy for crack users, through implementation of the nursing process. This is a case study, descriptive and exploratory with qualitative approach based on Neuman and the NANDA-NIC-NOC. Scenario: Psychosocial Care Center - Alcohol and Drugs from Vitória-ES. We applied the standard questionnaire of crack consumption, Addiction Severity Index, Mini International Neuropsychiatric Interview and Parental Bonding Instrument. It was found the complexity that lining the intra, inter and extra personal stressful situations. We discussed three diagnoses: 'poor knowledge about the substance use control ', 'ineffective coping' and 'social isolation', and interventions were suggested by articulation between NIC, NOC and secondary prevention of Neuman. It is therefore an important function of the nurse to mobilize system resources - internal and external - for stabilization and conservation of energy, in order to strengthen the lines of resistance, in addition to considering all the variables of the system and not only the use of crack.
