Abstract The substance abuse pandemic calls for a comprehensive model from which nurses can organize the vast array of drug and alcohol knowledge required for practice in the community. The model health for all: a model for nursing's contributions provides a framework for organizing factors that affect health status into four determinants: biologic, sociocultural, medical-technologic-organizational, and environmental. The model serves as an organizing mechanism to present key information about alcohol and drug abuse.
