This presentation was based on a graduate level Addictions class requirement. The assignment asked students to chose a movie or television show as a group that illustrates the theme of addiction through one of the main characters. First the students will determine a diagnosis of one of the characters in the movie. In addition, students will be required to provide a treatment plan. The group presentation should (1) include a detailed client description, including the issues of concern. It should be evident that a mental status exam was completed, (2) reflect a thorough understanding of the client’s bio/psycho/social profile, (3) reflect any culturally relevant information that may impact the course of treatment and addiction, (4) provide some psychoeducation on the client’s drug of choice, and (5) develop an effective treatment plan for the addiction. Your chosen treatment plan and interventions should be reflective of best practice and be empirically supported.
