Abstract

Background

Single embedded case study design is proposed to acquire an in-depth descriptive explanation regarding the role of faith-based recovery program in the substance use disorders recovery process for women recovered from substance use disorder and addiction. The field of nursing education and practice is integrated with abstract concepts such as spirituality, faith, hope, holistic healing, body, mind, and spirit. The abstractness of such nursing concepts can lead to many assumptions and interpretations.

Method

The interpretivist paradigm is the most appropriate for this case study research because it focusses on subjectivity by exploring the views, experiences, perceptions, and meanings of participants in relation to the reality of the faith-based recovery process, which relies on context. The interpretivist approach allows the researcher to explore how faith is understood and implemented in the reality of day-to-day recovery from addiction and why questions about whether faith-based recovery process are occurring or not. The interpretivist paradigm in nursing research helps the nurse researcher to explore the process, meaning, and qualities of a faith-based recovery process from substance addiction that is not subject to measurement or experiment. The interpretivist approach of case study draws a conclusion of individuals, units, or cases within specific contexts and involves description and exploration (Yin, 2013).

Conclusion

The definition clarity of many nursing concepts such as faith, spirituality, caring, hope, and holistic healing can be achieved through the lenses of interpretivist approach to discover meaning. Nursing science is founded on theories. Interpretivist approach of a case study design in nursing concepts such as faith, hope, caring, will generalize theories and expand theoretical propositions.
