Discussion: treatment of substance use disorders | SOCW 6090 – Psychopathology and Diagnosis for Social Work Practice | Walden University

 

Of the substance disorders, alcohol-related disorders are the most prevalent even though only a small percentage of individuals actually receive help. Recidivism in the substance treatment world is also very high. As research into treatment has developed, more and more evidence shows that genes for alcohol-metabolizing enzymes can vary by genetic inheritance. Women have been identified as particularly vulnerable to the impacts of alcohol. Native Americans, Asians, and some Hispanic and Celtic cultures also have increased vulnerability to alcohol misuse.

Even with these developments, treatment continues to spark debate. For many years, the substance use field itself has disagreed with mental health experts as to what treatments are the most effective for substance use disorders and how to improve outcomes. The debate is often over medication-assisted treatment (MAT) versus abstinence-based treatment (ABT). Recently the American Psychiatric Association has issued guidelines to help clinicians consider integrated solutions for those suffering with these disorders. In this Discussion, you consider your treatment plan for an individual with a substance use disorder.

  

To prepare for our discussion, Please read “THE CASE OF XAVIER” and the materials for the week. Then assume that you are meeting with XAVIER as the social worker who recorded this case.

Then, by Wednesday night, Please post a 300- to 500-word response in which you address the following:

  • Provide the full DSM-5 diagnosis for Xavier Remember, a full diagnosis should include the name of the disorder, ICD-10-CM code, specifiers, severity, and the Z codes (other conditions that may need clinical attention). Keep in mind a diagnosis covers the most recent 12 months.
  • Explain the diagnosis by matching the symptoms identified in the case to the specific criteria for the diagnosis.
  • Describe the assessment(s) you would use to validate her diagnosis, clarify missing information, or track her progress.
  • Summarize how you would explain the diagnosis to Him.
  • Explain how you would engage him in treatment, identifying potential cultural considerations related to substance use.
  • Describe your initial recommendations for her treatment and explain why you would recommend MAT or ABT.
  • Identify specific resources to which you would refer her. Explain why you would recommend these resources based on his diagnosis and other identity characteristics (e.g., age, sex, gender, sexual orientation, class, ethnicity, religion, etc.).

 Discussion Post– QUESTION 1

Please read Chapter 5 – Development of Law, and Chapter 6 – Introduction to Law, and discuss why physicians have been so reluctant to remove patient’s life support systems.

Support your discussion with terms and concepts from the assigned reading in a way that demonstrates your knowledge of those terms and concepts.

Provide at least one example found through research outside of the textbook related to physician’s treatment of patients on life support. Be sure to cite your sources, use intext citations, and provide links when possible.

Always respond to two or more of your classmates in a meaningful way in each discussion.

RESPOND TO THIS:

In the United States, studies have shown that most patients who expire in intensive care units do so during the withholding and withdrawal of life support systems. Withholding and withdrawal of life support is the process through which medical interventions are not given to patients or are removed, with the expectation that the patient will die from an underlying illness. This action is legally justified by the principles of informed consent and informed refusal, both backed up by the common law. However, statutory and case law regarding the limitations of life-sustaining treatment vary from state to state. This may be why physicians are reluctant to removing life support systems. There is also a lot of pressure put on the family members of the patient, as they are the ones who make the ultimate decision. 

RESPOND TO THIS:

The study of medicine and the people who take the Hippocratic oath, aka physicians, are trained to promise to care for ill people.  They vow to do all they can to heal the patient.  Patients who are terminally ill and facing death or are prematurely put in commas that they may never come out of makes this promise difficult.  Physicians and nurses are trained for healing only, so logically keeping a patient on life support gives that hope that there can be a way to save that life.  Physicians also know that the family should decide to remove someone from life support.  A loved one’s death can be very stressful and painful, and it is a fragile line of what is right and what could end up in a worse situation.  Such as the case of Stolle V The Baylor College of Medicine.  In this case, Stolle’s newborn baby was born with congenital disabilities, and as such, the parent signed a directive not to resuscitate if the child was to go under duress.  When this occurred, the physician ignored the directive and did what he could to keep the baby alive.  The baby survived and was placed on life support.  The family sued because of the directive that was ignored and the pain and suffering the child and family will now have to endure with this child’s life.  The family later lost the case due to the extent of the directive and the wording that excluded certain facts that would save the life of the child.  

Lawsuits like the above are not uncommon in these instances. Because of someone’s delicacies on life support, I feel this is why physicians only “advise” on the condition and methods to treat that patient but do not make the decisions to remove someone off of life support.

Business Model Innovation Proposal

This assignment has two components:

Discovering the Job

(A) Select a publicly traded organization (Wal-Mart) with which you are familiar (it can be your own company but one you have not yet used in this course or BMGT8130). Write a paper that describes a target customer group from your selected company that reflects a deconstruction of the job that the customer is trying to get done. Also, analyze opportunities for innovation using this new lens. You will be building on the results of this assignment in Unit 5, Assignment 1, for the Business Model Innovation Proposal.

Business Model Innovation Proposal

(B) In section A, you identified and evaluated the job to be done for a target market segment or customer group. For section B, integrate the work from section A and prepare and submit a proposed business model innovation for this target organization. Define all of the proposed elements in the business model innovation, indicating the logic behind the element selection using a synthesis of the assigned readings and your research in support. Also, explain why this business model is innovative. Finally, explain the assumptions and trends upon which your business model innovation is based and how you will mitigate the limitations of the strategic assumptions in your model. As part of your paper, interweave some of the discoveries in preparing your post for this unit’s discussion.
