Addiction Theories Into Practice

Case Study 1.2

Jacob is a 30-year-old male who came to your agency for an addiction assessment. At his first session, he was diagnosed as addicted to cocaine, his drug of choice. Jacob’s HMO insurance coverage is limited to 5 days of inpatient treatment and 10 outpatient sessions with you. This is his first treatment for addiction. He tells you that all of his friends use cocaine and that his roommate started him on it. He says he likes cocaine because he does not feel depressed when he takes it. He also states that he feels like a failure because he became a drug addict like his father. 1. How would you use behavioral theories in terms of Jacob’s recovery? 2. How would his culture be important to his recovery process? 3. What aspect of the disease model might be helpful to him?
