Assignment 2: LASA 1—Diagnosis for Substance Use Disorder with Co-occurring Disorder

In your professional capacity as a substance abuse counselor, you are not permitted to give diagnoses for mental disorders other than those related to substance abuse. However, you will likely be exposed to clients with mental health disorders in the assessment or treatment process. The competent substance abuse evaluator will be able to identify clients who present mental health disorders and make the appropriate referrals. Providing appropriate referrals for clients is common in the substance abuse field.

In M1: Assignment 3, you developed a case history for a person with an addiction. In this assignment, you will develop a case history and include one mental disorder. The inclusion of a mental disorder in your case study will aid in the examination of co-occurring disorders. You will then present your diagnosis and referrals.

This assignment has two parts. Complete both parts.

Part I

Demographics—including age, gender, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, marital status, number and ages of children, living arrangements, and religion if applicable

Presenting problem

Previous psychiatric treatment of patient

Previous chemical treatment of patient

Chemical history

Medical history—including disabilities if applicable

Part II

Analyze the case history and present your diagnosis as related to substance use disorders. Include the following in your diagnosis:

Summarize key case study elements you would use to formulate a diagnosis and guide your treatment plan.
