BRITO, Andiara Araújo Cunegundes de; SILVA, Danielle Souza  and  AZEVEDO, Dulcian Medeiros de. Nursing student's education: experience in the care to users of psychoactive drugs. Esc. Anna Nery [online]. 2012, vol.16, n.2, pp.395-400. ISSN 1414-8145.

This article intended to report the experience lived by nursery nursing academics in Fundação Belo Amor, located in Caicó/RN, a psycho-social rehabilitation service for alcohol and drug users, aiming to recognize the town's mental health network. This living was prompted by the subject of Mental Health Public Policies, offered during the sixth semester of the nursing graduation course, and included two moments: getting to the reality and performing two group techniques. Through the activities performed, it was possible to approach to the users' life-story, to understand their feelings which led them to drugs consumption or recurrences, current rehabilitation process living and future perspectives. This experience promoted the academics to understand the importance of this service to mental health network, and also for generalist, critic, and reflexive training of nursing professionals.

Keywords : Illicit Drugs; Mental Health Services; Rehabilitation Centers; Nursing Education; Psychiatric Nursing.
