Chemical Use Assessment/History and Treatment Recommendations Name: DOB/Age: Dates of Interviews: Evaluator: Reason for Assessment The reason for this assessment is to discover the cause of Sarah's heroine and alcohol addiction problem. I will look at the family background friends boyfriend environment and several other reasons that could have led to her drug addiction problem. Throughout the assessment her religion is considered. Therefore the main focus is to find a way to control her addiction problem or to entirely stop her from taking heroin. Sources of Information In this assessment I will use a couple of sources. The sources include Sarah her father boyfriend her home life her friends from her workplace the number of drugs that she consumes on a daily basis and scholarly articles with information relating to Sarah's case. From the listed sources I will be able to identify the needed treatment for Sarah from more from fellow mates stories. Also she needs to set herself some life goals to drive her. According to Dr. Hawkins presentations there are several ways of recovering from being an addict; first is a strong relationship with the God setting new goals facing the truth being accountable to family and engaging in new processes (WHO 2009). Therefore Sarah should start visiting the AA-group as she does not need any hospitalization. Also she needs assistance from others like friends and families. At the same time she needs to understand her vulnerabilities which is the most effective measure to her final recovery.ReferencesDoweiko N. (Ed.). (2009). Addiction medicine.
