Question 1
Drug and substance abuse is one of the major problems that is affecting the globe. Notably,
through the help of various social organizations and the many social workers across the
globe, may people have been helped overcome this menace of substance abuse across the
globe. Some of the crucial roles that social workers play include the identification and
assessment of potential drug and substance addicts. Since many social workers are commonly
found in places such as schools, prisons and hospitals, they are able to identify drug users
among them and get them necessary help that they need. Furthermore, human service
workers also participate in the direct treatment of the patients. Although many social workers
graduate in social work programs with information on drug and substance abuse, many of
them continue with their studies in counselling and alcohol hence making the qualified to
treat drug addicts. Furthermore, human service workers act as educators of effects of drug
and substance abuse in places such as school and hospitals. Lastly, social workers actively
participate in research mostly in university situations. This kind of research equips them with
necessary knowledge on the drugs that are been abused the most by people. These methods
are very effective since there has been a great decrease in the number of drug addicts among
the youth globally.
Question 2
