For this assignment, imagine you are a counselor working in a disease model treatment program. A case study will be selected for you. The person in your selected case study will represent the "client" who is seeking help from your program.
Complete the following sections for this assignment:
Introduction—In this section of the paper:
Identify the client from the case study and briefly summarize the client's demographic characteristics and addictive behavior history that are relevant to the disease models of addiction. This section sets the stage for the next sections.
Applications of Disease Models—In this section:
Apply your understanding of the disease models of addiction to your client. Do client demographics and history suggest that your client suffers from a disease of addiction? Based on your interpretation, what disease model treatment strategies might you recommend for this client?
Sociocultural Factors and the Disease Models—Finally, in the last section:
Describe how sociocultural factors ("medicalization" of addictions through diagnoses, medical treatment, pharmacotherapy, genetic influences, brain scans, and media portrayal of addictions) may affect the client's perception of the problem and the addictive behavior.
Describe factors that may contribute to the addictive behavior as well as factors that may be helpful in overcoming the addiction from the perspective of the disease models of addiction.
