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.
