question and answer

1. You work as a resident assistant at a university that has recently become a “smoke free” environment. You have a number of students in your dorm who you know are smokers. As the RA, you play a role in informing the students of this policy change at the school and providing students with appropriate information and resources.

You decide to have a meeting with your residents to discuss the policy change. You plan to address:

  • The rational for this change (Why is the college instituting this policy. You might address: acute and chronic impacts of smoking, the impact of passive smoking, etc.)
  • The pharmacology of nicotine
  • If the students want to try to quit or reduce their use because  of the new rules, what options do they have?

Create a PowerPoint presentation that you will use at this meeting. Remember that your population is college students.

2. On page 254, our text states that “multiple types of factors influence the development of alcohol use disorder” and alcohol use disorder “is caused and maintained by a combination of biological, psychological, and sociological factors.” It goes on to include that alcohol use disorder cannot be understood unless “all the types of influencing variables” are considered. 

When a patient enters treatment for an alcohol use disorder, step one is the completion of a Biopsychosocial Assessment. Review the Biopsychosocial Assessment below and make a list of the biological, the psychological, and the social or sociological factors that you believe may be contributing to his alcoholism. Lastly, please write at least 6 sentences reflecting your recommendations for this individual. Recommendations can include professional interventions, personal interventions, legal interventions, family-based interventions, medical interventions, etc.

The identified patient (IP) is 44 year old divorced Caucasian male.  IP reported that he took his 3 children on vacation to Ocean City on 8/10/19. On 8/12/19 IP went to the beach with his kids and reported drinking 2 beers. Later that evening he took his kids out to dinner, where he reported drinking 3 nip size bottles of vodka. During their walk home the IP fell. Concerned citizens came to his aid and when they realized he was intoxicated they called the police. When the police arrived they took the IP and his children to the police department. IP’s mother in law drove from Pennsylvania to Maryland to pick up the children. At 11:00pm the IP was transferred to a local medical center where they performed a BAC test. 5 hours after his initial arrest. BAC was .321. IP was confronted on the fact that his recorded BAC does not accurately represent his reported alcohol consumption throughout the evening. IP admitted that he had consumed more alcohol than initially reported but was unwilling to elaborate on how much. After he was medically stabilized the police transferred IP to the local correctional facility. He appeared in front of the judge the following day and was released with 3 charges of endangering the welfare of a child. IP is divorced and had sole custody of his children leading up to the arrest.

IP reported that he had a normal upbringing and there was no abuse within the household growing up. However, he described his father as a “functional alcoholic” and stated that he was very strict with him and his brother. He reported that his mother drank socially and sometimes took medication to help her control anxiety.  His parents divorced when he was 15 years old and he stated that “it sucked.” He and his brother spent the week with their mother and the weekends with their father. IP noted that after the divorce his relationship with his father started to deteriorate and reported that he has not had a relationship with his father for the last 8 years. IP reported that his paternal grandparents were heavy drinkers. He shared that his brother doesn’t have any known substance use problems, but has been in treatment for a gambling addiction twice.

IP was divorced in June of 2015. IP was with his wife for 12 years and noted that they were happy with each other until they had children. He reported that his wife had complaints about his drinking and he feels that this contributed to their separation. IP reported that after their first child his wife told him that she did not want to be married and she did not want to be a mother. They subsequently had two more children. Children are currently 10, 8, and 6 years old.  IP currently has 3 counts of endangering the well fare of a minor. He reported that he has very limited supports in his life and his primary purpose is looking after his children and working.

Watch the documentary Recovery Boys on Netflix and answer the 6 essay questions.

SBARR is a technique used to communicate critical information succinctly and briefly. 

You are meeting with the treatment team to discuss a client transfer from mental health to substance abuse treatment. 

Tammy, a 22-year-old female, is currently seeing a mental health therapist in your clinic. The therapist has come to you because they believe Tammy would do better in the addictions program within the clinic. Tammy has been using marijuana and cocaine for the past 6 years. She started using after her parents got divorced. She is currently seeing the mental health therapist for depression and hyperarousal. In high school, Tammy found that marijuana helped her numb her feelings related to her parents’ separation. Her grades slipped from As and Bs to Cs and Ds. She began missing classes and missing curfew at home. Tammy was successful in college but after graduating has not found a job yet. She is currently living with her mother. She sleeps most days and is out with friends most of the night. Tammy came into therapy originally because her mother said she had to meet with someone or she could not continue to live at home. Tammy has not changed her behaviors in spite of meeting weekly with her therapist. She continues to smoke marijuana and use cocaine, both in and outside the house. She has no intention of stopping her substance use in spite of some of the consequences she is facing.

After meeting with Tammy, you note that she was calm and cooperative. She answered all of your questions, and you feel she is a good candidate for transfer to the SA program.

Using the SBARR tool, assess this patient for possible substance abuse treatment. What are some of the responses you might hear from your colleagues? List at least 3 ethical considerations you might encounter with this case.

Situation – What’s going on with the patient right now? (Identify yourself, the patient, and state the problem concisely.)

Background – What’s the background on this patient? How did we get to this point? (Review the chart. Anticipate questions. State the relevant issues.)

Assessment – What do I think the issue is? Why am I concerned? (Provide your observations and evaluations of the client’s current state.)

Recommendation – What should we do to respond to the situation? (Suggest what should be done to meet the client’s immediate needs.)

Response – Collaboration resulting in a plan of action. (Listen for/seek feedback to ensure responder understands the issue.) 

Your original response does not have a prescribed length.

 

1. Suppose you and a group of your colleagues realized that your substance abuse treatment agency was not doing a good job of meeting the needs of clients over the age of 65. You decide to design a program that will serve these clients more effectively. What might be some specific outcomes you would like the program to achieve?

2. Choose one of the outcomes you listed in your answer to question 1. What are some methods you might use to help your clients achieve this outcome?

3. Considering again the outcome statements you listed in your answer to question 1, how might you evaluate your agency’s success in achieving the desired outcome?

question and answer

As you read about difficult conversation, you certainly came across its description as “anything that you find hard to talk about” (sexuality, race, gender, politics, religion etc. A conversation is difficult when we feel vulnerable, when our self-esteem is implicated, when the topic is important and the outcome uncertain, and finally when we care deeply about the topic or the person with whom we are discussing. More than often, we don’t want to face difficult conversations because of our deepest fears  of the consequences that may ensue. We have learned about avoidance, collaboration, compromise, competition and accommodation. Yet we find it hard to engage in some conversations. The following quote put it well: “Delivering a difficult message is like throwing a hand grenade. No matter what, there will be damage” (Difficult Conversation). 

Instructions:After watching the video below, please answer to the following questions in no less than 1000 words.
