The mental health status of a patient is very important when you are dealing with drug abuse and suicidality. Knowing if there is co-morbidity in the diagnosis will help determine the best treatment plan for the patient. However, not all hospitals are required to run mental health screening on their patients. Often this test is left up to the desecration of the medical staff on duty at the time of the patients intake. Data Analysis Plan

One Doctor in Connecticut has been vocal on his opinion of the ACA and has publicly spoken out on air and through articles. Jason D. Fodeman, M.D., is an Internal Medicine Resident at the University of Connecticut and a Visiting Fellow at the Galen Institute. He is also the author of the critically acclaimed book How to Destroy a Village.

A biomedical career that I found interesting is a neurologist. This profession is connected to neurology, which is a branch of medicine dealing with disorders in the nervous system, focusing on the brain and the spinal cord. Some similar careers are: Psychiatrist, Neurosurgeon, Biological Psychologist, etc. Neurologists diagnose and treat people with an array of disorders, such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer 's, epilepsy, and much more. Neurologists can prescribe medication to patients, but if one requires surgery, they will refer them to a neurosurgeon.

The substance abuse category has removed as the committee argues that there not be enough evidence of an intermediate state between substance use and substance dependence. The DSM–5 definitions of substance use disorder, “a cluster of cognitive, behavioral, and physiological symptoms indicating that the individual continues using the substance despite significant substance-related problems” this definition used to refer to substance addiction (American Psychiatric Association, 2013, p. 483). Addiction, substance use disorder, and dependence all refer to a chronic drug-taking condition, and for these terms are used with that intended definition. Substance abuse is now only used for research specific to that occurrence.
In the book Social Control by James Chriss, the author argues, "since the public health model views problems in society as a diseases or disease-based, the three prevention-primary, secondary, and tertiary - refer to the stage to which the disease has progressed at diagnosis or discovery. In this sense, tertiary prevention is the lowest level of prevention, in that it represents a state of affairs in which the disease has gone undiagnosed or unnoticed for quite some time" (Chriss 2013). According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affair (VA), 476,515 military service members with primary or secondary diagnosis of PTSD received treatment at VA medical centers and clinics in 2011. Also, the secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric K. Shinseki, states

"With the new legislation, the goal became rehabilitation. Once someone is found NCR they are managed by review boards – independent tribunals made up of at least five people, including a psychiatrist. Each year most cases are heard by the board which can order that the person remain detained in a hospital with varying levels of privileges, released on a conditional discharge or ordered to be released on an Absolute Discharge. In conditional discharges, individuals are allowed into the community where they have substantial freedom and relatively light conditions." (Doc Zone, 2013, April 10)
But in the course of interview’s it gave a sense that although some home remedies and rituals might be used, they have seen from themselves and family members they usually go to the doctor or get over the counter medicine. But one of the facts I stated early about liver disease in regards to alcohol ties into a statistic, Francis joked that her family likes to drink for a cold or for any random disease, according to US National Library Medicine and National Institute of health in Hispanics “Chronic liver disease is a major cause of morbidity and mortality among Hispanics living in the United States” (ncni.nlm.nih.gov, 2014). This question someway tie’s into health concerns when I asked them the questions about health concerns in their population. The question of if diet effects their health was answered in the other question, both people I interviewed stressed that most of their concerns with their family and culture have to do with diet and exercise, which ties in the risk factors in Hispanics.

Addiction treatment can be handled through many methodologies. The important thing is getting patients into treatment before an addiction has the ability to destroy their lives. One reason why people avoid treatment is because of the presumed restrictive nature of residential treatment.

Outpatient care could certainly be a viable option.
There are many legal and ethical principles and standards one must acknowledge when becoming a professional addictions counselor. In the state of Pennsylvania, the State Board of Social Worker’s, Marriage and Family Therapists and Professional Counselors oversees the process of obtaining a license and sets the requirements for doing so.

In addition to the Pennsylvania Board’s requirements, professional addiction counselors must adhere to a specific code of ethics set by the NAADAC. Failure to adhere to these codes of ethics can lead to legal ramifications, punishments and/or loss of license.
