Specialized Courts Specialized courts are commonly known as the problem-solving courts that promote positive reinforcement, support behavior modification, decrease victimization, and reduce recidivism. Examples of specialized courts include drug court and mental health courts. A community might benefit from establishing a specialized court such as a drug court because it follows a comprehensive model that concentrates on reducing criminal actions through treatment and rehabilitation services with the focus being on substance abuse addiction and identifying the cause without jeopardizing public safety and due process (Specialized Courts, 2013). Another specialized court that a community might benefit from establishing is a mental health court. The aim of mental health courts is to connect people with mental illness, that display deviant behavior, to mental health resources and social services that can better deal with cases such as these as an option for individuals who need to be treated more than they need to be imprisoned (A Promising Alternative, 2011).
To become a licensed clinical social worker student who did not earn a bachelors of social work, must complete a traditional masters of a social work program that typically takes two to four years depending on whether a student attends full-time or part-time. After my bachelors in social work, I would like do my masters and try to work in a psychiatry hospital in the adolescent's department. After graduation, the path to becoming a licensed clinical social worker is different for each state due to different licensing requirements. But typically, students should expect to complete a minimum of post-graduation work experience requirements almost like internships (which takes two to three years to complete). Also passing licensing examinations.
Another psychograph that I am targeting are people involved with addiction recovery organizations. Much of the film’s content deals with Padraig O’Malley’s struggle with recovering from alcoholism. This would be very relatable for those individuals who work with helping others recover from addiction, and perhaps those who are currently struggling. The film is very inspiring in that it shows people that they can still do wonderful, inspiring things throughout their struggles, such as how Padraig creates peace while battling addiction. Nevertheless, Padraig realized how detrimental alcoholism is to his health and has been sober in pursuit to improve his wellbeing.
The support group I am interested in using for my Support Group Paper is a support group called Narcotics Anonymous. Narcotics Anonymous is a nonprofit organization that assists individuals to recovery from their addiction of using drugs. This type of organization has support groups that express their experiences of using drugs, how it affects the user and those closest to them, and supports each member in the support group to keep from using drugs again, as done in its support group.
This is a type of focused meditation that will help the client experience inner quietness. It will also help him reduce stress hormones by activating the parasympathetic nervous system (Bergland, 2016). According to a research study developed to find the benefits of Hypnosis and CBT when treating Acute Stress Disorder, it was found that hypnosis may be useful in facilitating the treatment effects of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for clients who experience posttraumatic stress. Thus, combining CBT with hypnosis can help the client reduce reexperiencing symptoms (Bryant, Moulds, Guthrie, & Nixon, 2005). Therefore, the client will be encouraged to join hypnotherapy sessions.
Addiction is a problem nonetheless, but considering it as a disease may be used as a crutch. As well as pushing the idea that you can not overcome it. I have seen with my own eyes with family members overcoming drugs and or alcohol under their own will power. A disease needs constant treatment, and you don 't always win. The world we portray by calling addiction a disease is one that supports an untrue fact, one in which you can 't be an addiction on your own.
The only other thing they have to do is to get the prescription refilled and check in with a care provider. Someone does not have to go to therapy and face their problem. Using medication as treatment is a more independent method of treating a mental illness. Additionally, in many cases “most mental illnesses can be diagnosed and treated very effectively”(Lieberman 3). Thanks to new technology there is medication for everyone “about 1 in 5 adults has a mental illness in any given year”(Symptoms and Causes- Mental Illness).
If an addiction is caught before any arrests are made, and the user is willing, they will most likely go to rehab. Also, in some cases they will be given a choice in court between going to rehab and going to jail. In a typical drug and alcohol rehab facility they will start with intake, where they will see if you're a correct fit for the treatment plan, they would then move on to detox which is a service to assist with withdrawal, and for the remainder of the time they would go to multiple therapy sessions throughout the day. After rehab some recovering addicts will go to Narcotics Anonymous meetings to help them stay on the right track. According to rehabs.com, only a third of people who have been sober for less than a year will stay sober, and if one makes it to five years of sobriety their chance of relapse is less than 15
A psychotherapists is then a person who uses psychological means instead of medical means to treat mental disorders. A psychotherapist can be considered as effective if they understand that mental disorders cannot be cured but can be treated and controlled. Effective psychotherapists also have good communication skills, they are open minded, understanding, creative, empathetic and persuasive (Wampold, 2011). They have a treatment plan, they record the progress of the clients and are flexible with their treatment strategies as they treat patients with different problems, personalities and backgrounds (Wampold, 2011). They also keep their personal issues away from clients.
Erick Erikson’s Theory Erikson’s stages of psycho-social developments comprising a series of eight interrelated stages, this is where a healthy developing individual should pass through from infancy until they reach their late adulthood. However, if an individual child had a terrible past, they might unable to cope with scenario’s that life present later. Per Erikson’s theory, he proposed that our lifespan model of psycho-social development, taking in five stages up until a child reached the age of nineteen years and other stages occurs through their adulthood.

Well, the real question is, what doesn 't a treatment center have to offer an addicted individual? It can help those who are addicted to drugs overcome their addiction and come out as an entirely different person. When you enter a treatment center for drug addiction, you have to first learn to get off of the drugs. Getting off of the drugs might seem like an impossible

Inciardi, Steven S. Martin, and Clifford A. Butzin’s “Five-Year Outcomes of Therapeutic Community Treatment of Drug-Involved Offenders After Release From Prison.” This article starts by saying that, according to several drug abuse clinicians and sociologists have stated the importance of the therapeutic community, referred to as TC because it is the “most viable form of treatment for drug-involved offenders, particularly for those whose criminality has resulted in incarceration.” (Inciardi, Martin, Butzin, 2004) The authors state that TC is a treatment environment separate from the prison population and that primary staff members are ex-substance abusers who previously went through TC treatment. There are three effective stages incorporated into TC treatment intervention. “The primary stage of treatment should consist of a prison-based therapeutic community (Inciardi et al., 1994). Segregated from the negativity of the prison culture, recovery from drug abuse, and the development of prosocial values in the prison.” (Inciardi et al., 2004) This stage excludes family members, coworker, and neighbors because they want the inmates to focus on treatment and interactions with those who have struggled with addicts to help build prosocial values and work ethic. The second stage

Substance Abuse in Returning Combat Veterans Returning combat veterans have difficulties contributing to our society based on their problems with substance abuse. There is an issue of returning combat veterans not being able to afford treatment for their illnesses, so they resort to self-medicating and use drugs and alcohol. Although it is worth considering that some combat veterans manage to escape their addiction for some time, but will usually end up relapsing and only hurt themselves more. We may also be concerned about some combat veterans not being able to adjust to their new lives and resorting to substance abuse a method of stress relief. Returning combat veterans are unable to help the country they protected due to not being able
