Difference between addiction and dependence

Knowledge about substance abuse in Ohio may prove useful in combatting it, but the terminology that often applies can be confusing. For example, when it comes to drug use, people often use the terms "addiction" and "dependence" interchangeably. However, the National Institute on Drug Abuse explains that they are not necessarily the same

What does the addicted RN look like?

Nurses are the backbone of the American health care system, filling approximately 4 million roles within the industry — which is four times the number of physicians throughout the U.S.. Not only do nurses make up a majority of health care workers but also, they shoulder much of the burden in any given health care environment. The high stress of their jobs, the long hours and the rotating shifts, coupled with easy access to addictive medications, make nurses particularly vulnerable to chemical dependency. If you work in a health care setting in Ohio, and if you suspect a colleague abuses prescription drugs, it would be helpful to know the signs of addiction so that you can act accordingly.
