Healthcare Substance Use and the Adolescent

Over the past decade, cases of substance related disorders have appeared more prevalent in society. From the mental health perspective, research has shown an increase in cases of substance related disorders, particularly with adolescents. This increase has prompted further investigation into adolescent risk and resilience factors, as well as accuracy in diagnosis and appropriate treatment plans. Yet, in cases of adolescent substance use, further investigation is still needed concerning notification rights of parents, legal authorities, and/or case workers.

For this Application, review the client case study in the Learning Resources. Consider the characteristics of the client. Which specific characteristics might you consider important in developing a diagnosis? Consider your rationale for assigning particular diagnoses on the basis of the DSM. Also, think about what other information or people you may need to include in the assessment in order to make an accurate diagnosis. Healthcare: Substance Use and the Adolescent

FEMALE SPEAKER: There’s no alcohol or drugs in our house, none. We’ve never done that. We don’t leave drink wine. That’s why I wanted our minister to talk to him.

MALE SPEAKER: Talk about zombies.

FEMALE SPEAKER: He’s the one who suggested that we come here and talk to because he was thinking that maybe something’s going on.

MALE SPEAKER: Yuck! I hate booze. I don’t do drugs, either. I say no every day. FEMALE SPEAKER: Personally, I think it’s the music he’s listening to.

MALE SPEAKER: Oh, brother.

FEMALE SPEAKER: I mean, the screaming. It’s so aggressive and angry. MALE SPEAKER: Feels good.

FEMALE SPEAKER: Maybe you agree with your mom that you’ve been depressed and angry in the past, Do you remember, maybe, why you felt that way?

MALE SPEAKER: Because I’m stupid.

MALE SPEAKER: They’re not my friends. You hate my friends.
