Drug rehab?

  1. I have a question:

    does rehabilitation nursing also apply to drug rehab? because i would like to be a nurse in a drug rehab center but i didn't really know what it would be called.

    if anyone is in this field could they let me know how it is?? thanks

    The Rehabilitation talked about here (and anywhere else I've seen) is only physical rehabilitation (although there's more than the physical involved a lot of the time). Try "substance abuse nursing", just a guess.
