The nursing team is one of the cornerstones of any health institution around the world, as the nursing team deals with various cases on a daily basis. To ensure the continued good performance of the nursing team in any health institution, it must be checked periodically that the team has the appropriate level of mental health to deal with patients. In mental health and addiction treatment institutions, the nursing team constantly deals with various seizures of mental illness symptoms or the effects of withdrawal in an addicted patient. Accordingly, it directly affects the impulses and emotions of the nursing staff to the extent that it may lead to a deterioration in their mental health, especially if they do not have a healthy psychological defense and awareness of the nature of the cases they deal with. This necessitates a periodic psychological assessment of them to ensure their emotional steadiness and to keep performing their work successfully. The study aimed to reveal the role of the emotional discipline of nursing personnel in controlling patients with narcotic-induced psychosis seizures. The researcher used the descriptive analytical approach through two tools, which are the emotional discipline scale and the questionnaire form. They were applied to a sample of (150) nurses and healthcare workers at the (Iradat al-Amal Complex for Mental Health) in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The sample was randomly selected. The collected data were processed by the two research tools using the SPSS26 statistical processing package. The results of the research on the questionnaire showed that there is a positive effect on the level of emotional discipline of the nursing staff in their ability to control the seizures of narcotic-induced psychosis patients. Whereas, the medical team and nurses have a medium ability to control their impulses with drug abuse psychosis patients, with a mean ranging from 1.525 to S.D 0.423. The medical team and nurses show a high level of flexibility in emotional responses when dealing with psychotic patients' seizures resulting from drug use in appropriate situations, with a mean ranging from 1.800 and S.D 0.389. The medical team and nurses have a medium level of flexibility in emotional responses when dealing with psychotic patients' seizures resulting from drug use in situations that call for these feelings, with a mean ranging from 1.622 and S.D 0.419. The medical and nursing staff have a medium level of flexibility in the role of emotional discipline to control psychotic episodes among drug abusers, with a mean ranging from 2.099 and S.D 0.723. The results of analyzing the data collected from the research sample concluded that there is a fundamental role in the level of emotional discipline among nursing personnel. Consequently, their role-playing abilities are evident when dealing with seizures of narcotic-induced psychosis patients.
