MANAGING ADDICTION CENTER 2 Managing Addiction Centre Introduction Drug addiction is considered a very critical disease that is characterised having uncontrollable looking for and use of drugs despite the knowledge that the drugs have harmful effects to their body and their brain. These drugs change the behaviour of the individual using them a great deal. For example in the case presented, the 55 year old adult reported that he was seeing little men around him, his hands are unsteady and he is slurring some of his words and this is a sign of addiction. Drug addiction can either develop in an individual over a long period of time or can take hold of an individual quickly depending on the individual (Beck & Wright, 2011). Although addicted individuals show a lot of similarities, every case is unique since it is influenced by different factors in individuals such as the age, the gender, the drug that is being abused as well as the psychological and biological factors of an individual. Being such a critical disease, treatment is needed for individuals suffering addiction and this is offered in addiction centres. Counsellors in an addiction centre have the role of providing awareness, education, care as well as support to drug addicts to help them be sober. A counsellor needs to perform this role by means of making confrontation to the problem that an individual has without making judgement to the patient. They need to ensure that care and support that is prescribed to an individual or the recovery path that is chosen for an individual suits the needs of the individuals since personal qualities make every addiction case unique. In this assignment we are going to explore the treatment steps that will be followed for the case of the 55 year old man who has been brought into the facility by his daughter to ensure quality and effective care.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
