Hello! This is a final paper that we have to write based on a topic we chose. In this case, my topic is: “Is Alcoholics Anonymous the best treatment strategy for alcoholism/alcohol use
disorder?” I would like to argue that it is the best treatment strategy, one of the reasons being social interaction being necessary for recovery in a lot of these cases. I do know that certain medications do work and are more successful when paired with social interaction. However, I’m not sure what else to add. I do have to have 3 references that absolutely have to be used and I will link them in a document (titled reference1, reference2, reference3). You are also allowed to site other research articles if they help the point of the paper. This professor also has an instructions sheet on what exactly they want to see that I will also link (titled assignment guidelines). The format of this paper is not to be APA either. Citations can either be MLA or APA. It’ll say in the document I will provide.

Write a (3-5) three to five-page paper (excluding APA title page and reference p

Write a (3-5) three to five-page paper (excluding APA title page and reference pages) comparing Freud, Mahler, Adler, and Erikson. Compare and contrast the developmental models of Freud and Erikson, and then compare and contrast the developmental theories of Adler and Mahler. Are there any similarities between all of them? Be sure to also address the following:
Compare and Contrast Freud & Erikson
Compare and Contrast Adler & Mahler
Similarities of all listed above
There should be…
A brief description of each theory. Which perspective appeals to you more, and why?
What are some ways the Adlerian approach can be applied to group counseling? What are some advantages of using a group format with this approach?
What concepts from these psychoanalytic approaches do you see as being potentially useful in your work as a nurse psychotherapist? Describe why.
Why should the nurse psychotherapist understand developmental theories for application in clinical practice?
You should cite a minimum of three APA references.
Note: Scholarly resources are defined as evidence-based practice, peer-reviewed journals; textbook (do not rely solely on your textbook as a reference); and National Standard Guidelines. Review assignment instructions, as this will provide any additional requirements that are not specifically listed on the rubric.

Opioid Epidemic
Briefly describe the current opioid epidemic. What leads us to this state? What are some ways in which we could combat this epidemic? What are some current barriers to these proposed ways? Interested in hearing what you all come up with!
Please use external resources to support your discussion.
You will need to cite your resources.

Mary K. Emerson is a patient at Felder Community Hospital. She was admitted last

Mary K. Emerson is a patient at Felder Community Hospital. She was admitted last Thursday due to a diabetic episode and an upper respiratory infection that left her unresponsive at work. She was admitted to the ICU, and medical staff attempted to stabilize her condition. There were some problems with her care due to the wrong information being entered into the patient’s medication record in her chart. When the nursing staff was trying to update her medications from a previous episode, they chose Mary J. Emerson instead of the current patient, Mary K. Emerson. Mary J. Emerson was also a patient admitted around the same time to another unit. Mary K. was given penicillin for the upper respiratory infection but was found to have an extreme allergy, which sent her into acute respiratory distress. The penicillin was administered and documented on Mary J. Emerson’s chart before the clinical staff noticed the error.
As Mary remained in the ICU and drifted in and out of consciousness, clinical staff tried to make sure they remained on schedule with her medications. On two noted occasions, the scheduled dose of 30 units of insulin that was to be administered subcutaneously with meals was delayed during the shift. On a separate occasion, the nurse tech drew up 40 units to be administered intramuscularly instead of the prescribed subcutaneous route.
On the fifth day of her admission, Mary K. was exhausted from the testing and medication changes. When the nurse came in to administer her scheduled dose of insulin, she stated “Please, no more meds!”
A. Discuss the basic principles of pharmacology by doing the following:
1. Discuss the four stages of the drug cycle.
2. Discuss the physiological factors involved in drug absorption and drug distribution.
3. Discuss the difference between a side effect, a contraindication, and an adverse reaction to a medication.
a. Provide an example of a side effect, a contraindication, and an adverse reaction to a medication.
B. Using the scenario, discuss the seven drug rights when auditing documentation for a patient encounter by doing the following:
1. Identify the seven drug rights that were violated in the scenario.
a. Explain why the situations in the scenario are a violation of the seven drug rights.
2. Discuss the process an HIM professional would need to take to report the violations in the scenario to the appropriate party.
C. Explain the roles of OSHA, the FDA, and the DEA in enforcing the Controlled Substances Act.
D. Acknowledge sources, using APA-formatted in-text citations and references, for content that is quoted, paraphrased, or summarized.
