  1. Read the case study details and refer to your textbook, and the DSM-5, as needed to support your understanding.

In your initial post,

  • Start by identifying the symptom or diagnosis you searched and the name of the case study you chose.
    • (e.g. Albert [borderline personality disorder with comorbid alcohol use])
  • Next, describe the patient’s symptoms and the available demographic and historical data.
    • If new terminology is introduced, be sure to explain to your peers what this entails.
  • Analyze the differences between the diagnosis of the person identified in your case study and a similar illness/diagnosis.
  • Discuss the available treatments for your case study.
  • Evaluate the health and social risks, as well as costs, of alcohol or substance use disorder.
  • What do you think about how our society handles this problem? Is there more we should be doing or is society too involved in this issue?
  • Finally, develop at least three recommendations for the patient/family for ongoing functioning (social, occupational, and academic, if applicable), associated with your chosen case study.
