2 ADDICTIONS CASE STUDY Addictions Case Study: Part I Brief Summary Marci is a 22-year-old female who was introduced to alcohol at the age of 13 by her parents. By age 18, dinner wine had progressed to frequent alcohol usage in addition to the use of marijuana, cocaine, LSD, and tobacco dependency. Marci is sexually active and engaging in unprotected sex. She is depressed, anxious and has missed her period. Substance abuse is feeding depression and anxiety and its dependency has negatively spiraled to the detriment of family relationships, goal achievement and self-esteem. Marci is a college student who works with the family in missions and attends church regularly. Over the past several years, Marci has smoked marijuana to obtain a feeling of euphoria, snorted cocaine generating a high amount of energy, ingested LSD as a means to alter perception, thoughts, and feelings though no hallucinations are admitted, and smoked tobacco in cigarette form for a pleasurable feeling. Marci stopped smoking cigarettes for 6 months, started back and now articulates that she no longer has a desire to quit.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
