Question description


Review the following scenario and address the  questions that follow:

Julia got into a car accident at the end of  her senior year of high school, which resulted in a broken leg and an injured  knee, both of which needed surgery to repair. During her recovery, she was in a  lot of pain, so her doctor prescribed OxyContin.

After several weeks, the prescribed dose of  OxyContin was no longer sufficient to completely alleviate Julia’s pain. So,  she decided to take more than the prescribed dosage. This not only alleviated  Julia’s pain, but it also gave her a feeling of euphoria, which she enjoyed.  When Julia ran out of OxyContin and was unable to take it, she experienced a  great deal of pain, even in areas of her body that were not affected by the car  accident. She also found herself more anxious and agitated on days when she  could not take OxyContin than on days when she did take it.

Based on your analysis of the scenario and  module readings, respond to the following:

  • Which  assessment tool(s) would you use to help evaluate and diagnose Julia’s  substance use? Explain why you made your choice.
  • Based  on the DSM-IV-TR diagnostic criteria, which substance use disorder(s) does  Julia’s behavior fit into? Explain the rationale for your diagnosis.

Write your initial response in 300–400 words.  Apply APA standards to citation of sources.
