Open Access Integrating Treatment for Tobacco and Other Addictions at the Aurora Centre of the British Columbia Women's Hospital and Health Centre

Download Article:


Tobacco use leads to serious addiction and is the leading preventable cause of death in Canada. Despite the myriad health issues and diseases attributable to tobacco use, it is often ignored in the planning and provision of addictions treatment. Historically, the addictions-treatment field has functioned separately from the tobacco-intervention field, with a consequent lack of attention to nicotine addiction alongside other addictions. However, efforts are being made to integrate perspectives and experiences to respond more comprehensively to people with addictions by including tobacco among substances addressed.This article describes recent initiatives in incorporating tobacco treatment into addictions treatment in a women's residential addictions treatment program in Vancouver, Canada.

    We are excited to report that as of January 2016, the CJNR (Canadian Journal of Nursing Research) is being published under the SAGE Publications, Inc. banner.

    Currently published issues of the CJNR (1969-2015) are being moved to the McGill online archives where they will be hosted in perpetuity. This migration should be completed by Spring 2016. During this transition, all issues of CJNR remain accessible to our readers as before:

    1) Past issues of CJNR from 2003 to December 2015 through ingentaconnect.

    2) Issues from 2002 to 1969 can be accessed through the CJNR digital archive.

    We understand that this is a significant change. Please be confident that all parties are working diligently to make this a seamless transition that will further advance the scope and impact of CJNR.

    Thank you.
