PSYC FPX 4300 Assessment 3 I’ve Got you Pegged Treatment Plan

PSYC FPX 4300 Assessment 3 I’ve Got you Pegged Treatment Plan Name Capella University PSYC FPX 4300 Introduction to Addiction Treatment Prof. Name Date I’ve Got you Pegged Treatment Plan Client Name: Max Assessment Date: October 3, 2022 Substance Use History: Drug First Use: No Xanax: No Pattern of use over time: 4 to 5 per day Frequency of use in past month: Everyday Date/Amount of most recent use: 4 to 5 per day Have these drugs ever been used in combination? Michael has not used these drugs in combination with any other drugs, to my knowledge, from the information provided in the case study. Consequences Physical Consequences: Michael has not shown any physical consequences of the usage, except that he feels that he is good to go once he takes the four to five pills for the day. He has not said why he feels the need to take Xanax (Case Study, 2022). Psychological Consequences: Psychologically Michael feels the need to hide his use from his parents and school for fear of getting into trouble. Michael comes off as a bit defiant against his parents and resentful that they don’t notice him due to their divorce. He is also being affected in some way because they don’t know that he is gay. However, he doesn’t seem to have a problem with them knowing but makes it seems like they could possibly have an issue with this fact due to the fact that they are very religious. Medical Concerns: Michael’s mother has been seeing a therapist since the divorce. He says it is due to depression or anxiety; however, he is not completely sure. He has no other medical history or concerns related to the use of Xanax. Past Treatment History: Michael has not had any past treatment for any substance use, health concerns, or any other related issues. Michael specifically stated that he is able to receive the Xanax by lying to his doctor (Case Study). Michael noted that his parents have a history of drinking, but not in a bad way. Environmental Factors Residential: Michael lives with his mother due to the divorce. He has visitation with his father every other weekend. Social Support System: Michael’s mother and father are focused on the divorce, so they don’t pay attention to him and his brother very much. His brother was suspended from high school due to smoking weed. Michael’s current friends all use Xanax as he does, and they often share between themselves or offer to sell their Xanax. Family and Family History Family History of Use: Both of Michael’s parents drink alcohol, but he stated it was a normal amount. Michael’s older brother smokes weed. There are no other known family members with a history of substance use. Family Mental Health History: Michael’s mother is currently being seen by a therapist for issues related to the divorce, possibly anxiety or depression related. There are no other known family history-related illnesses. Current Additional Status To Consider Educational: Michael is currently in his final year of middle school. He will be attending high school next year. Financial: There is no known information about financial or work situation. Due to Michael being a minor, he likely too young to work. Legal: There are no known legal problems that Michael has faced. Motivation for Treatment: Michael is not currently seeking treatment for his use. He is likely seeing a doctor due to his parent’s divorce. Michael has not mentioned that he feels he has a problem with substance use, but he has mentioned that he has problems. Recommended assessment measures: In my opinion, I would likely assess his reasoning for using Xanax, in order to dig a little deeper into the root of the issue. I feel there are some deeper feelings and emotions at play in regards to his usage. Clinical Assessment Michael has been shown to be abusing the drug Xanax by using it every day in increments of 4 to 5 pills at a time. He shows a dependence on the drug based on the amount that he uses and the frequency of usage. Although he does not state why he feels the need to take Xanax, he feels that he is good after taking the 4 to 5 pills. Michael has gained a tolerance to the drug by showing he needs more than necessary in order to get by. Michael is diagnosed by the DSM-5 with substance abuse, and the ICD-10 code is F19 for anxiolytic drugs. According to the DSM-5, tolerance is when an increased dose is used to receive the desired effect (DSM-5, 2022). Unfortunately, Michael has given little information on his drug history use of Xanax and how it affects him physically or mentally. There is currently estimated to be 0.3% of 13–17-year-olds affected by the use of anxiolytics (DSM-5, 2022). Anxiolytic substances include benzodiazepines, carbamates, barbiturates, and barbiturate-like hypnotics, which also have sedative-like effects. Prescription sleeping medications and nearly all prescription anti-anxiety medications are among this class of drugs, including Xanax. Symptoms of the abuse of this type of drug include poor performance in school or work, missed work or school days, or suspension or expulsion from work or school. Another symptom of the use of these drugs includes neglect of children or the household by parents. PSYC FPX 4300 Assessment 3 I’ve Got you Pegged Treatment Plan Features supporting the diagnosis of substance abuse would be Michael’s level of tolerance to the drug and his daily usage. Other supporting factors could be related to the environment, such as his parent’s divorce. Even though he does not mention specifically that he was affected by it, he does show some agitation with being left alone or ignored. Being that the drug is also very easily attainable from friends in or out of school to him, it is a normal type of thing to do because all of his friends are doing it. Treatment Recommendations Michael is currently a teenager, and therefore, it is up to his
