History of drug use
Assignment 1: Case Study Due 2/17
In this module, you will get an opportunity to gather true-to-life data from a recovering addict. This assignment will enable you to develop a case study. Using the information you have gathered through this course, you will make recommendations for the continued success in recovery of the addict.
Interview a recovering addict (a friend, family member, or someone solicited from a 12-step open meeting), and write a three- to five-page paper discussing the following:
- Demographics of the individual (no real names)
- History of drug use
- Reasons for drug use
- The duration of drug use
- Steps taken to gain sobriety
- Steps taken to remain sober
- Recommendations you propose for continued success for recovery
Prepare your paper in Microsoft Word document format. Name your file M5_A1_LastName_Casestudy.doc, and submit it to the Submissions Area by the due date assigned.
Note: Do not make recommendations to the person you interview, but rather, use them for learning purposes in this paper.
All written assignments and responses should follow APA rules for attributing sources.
