Psych nursing vs. Addictions nursing

  1. Hello all,
    (also posted in "addictions nursing" forum)

    I'm transitioning over to my true love from acute rehab to my true love, psychiatric nursing. But recently I've been approached by some recruiters to to consider addictions nursing. At first, I blew it off, but after a bit of research and positive accounts, my interest has piqued.

    So my question to any of you who have experience in both fields:
    What are some of the differences, similarities, pro's and con's comparing the 2 areas. I know there's a lot of crossover between the 2, as addictions/CD nursing is within the psych realm of nursing...

    I just wanted to get some opinions on the 2 areas..
