Growing nonmedical prescription opioid analgesic use among suburban and rural Whites has changed the public's perception of the nature of opioid addiction, and of appropriate interventions.

Many older adults struggle with lifelong addictions or become addicted to prescription drugs that they take for coping with physical or psychological pain. There has been little attention, however, focused on this problem in nursing homes, where powerful pain medications are administered routinely. The nursing home setting provides complex challenges for staff and administrators attempting to provide safe and high-quality care for older adults with substance use disorders. Nurses working in long-term care settings, hospitals, and the community need to be sensitive to the possibility of older adults being addicted to alcohol or drugs and identify strategies for addressing this problem...
