Addiction Assessment and Intervention Plan For your Final Project, you will apply the information you have learned in this course to critically analyze a case study and develop an Assessment and Intervention Plan based on it. Your Final Project must explain the choices you made in your plan and be supported with scholarly references from peer-reviewed literature and your course text. The case study for your project will be selected by you from published media (literature or film). The subject of the case study should be at least 16 years of age and meet criteria for a substance-related or addictive disorder. Your Final Project should be 10–12 pages and include all of the following:
1. Overview of client using biopsychosocial model—this should include biological predispositions, family influences, cultural considerations, and other systemic factors, as applicable.
2. Assessment tools and rationale for selection 3. Provisional diagnosis with criteria; alternate considerations and rule-outs noted 4. Chosen therapeutic approach with rationale for selection; initial treatment goals
for client 5. Ethical and legal considerations 6. Relapse prevention and continuum of care plan
Don’t forget to include an introduction and summary in your paper! Although the Final Project is not to be submitted until Day 4 of Week 11, you should become familiar with the case study and project requirements and have them in mind as you proceed through the course. It is wise to select a subject for your final project at the start of the term, so you can conceptualize each section of the project as you progress through the course. The Final Project will be evaluated according to all four indicators in the Application Assignment and Final Paper Writing Rubric located in the Course Info area. Be sure that the Final Project is written using APA format. Information on scholarly writing may be found in the APA Publication Manual (6th ed.) and at the Walden Writing Center website. Also, refer to the Code of Conduct and Academic Integrity section of the Guidelines and Policies area of the course navigation menu. The Final Project is due on Day 4 of Week 11. Refer to the Week 11 Project area for submission details.
