Counseling Points

Counseling Points, an official publication of the International Nurses Society on Addictions (IntNSA), is now available for online reading. The strength of Counseling Points lies in its ability to deliver the most current and authoritative best practice information directly to care providers of patients with mental health and psychiatric issues. In this special issue on addiction, we look at new ways to combat a growing medical concern by providing better treatments for more patients afflicted with opioid dependencies.

Counseling Points is also an opportunity to earn continuing education (CE) credit. This continuing nursing education activity was approved by the Wisconsin Nurses Association Education Approval Program committee for one contact hour. It was also approved by the Pennsylvania Certification Board for one hour of substance abuse continuing education credit. See page 2 of the publication for complete details.

This publication has been made possible thanks to an unrestricted educational grant from Reckitt Benckiser Pharmaceuticals Inc. To view the first edition of Counseling Points, click here.
