6. When a client presents for treatment for substance use and abuse disorders the evaluator must
assess whether or not their psychiatric symptoms come from the substance use or from a
mental illness or both. Using the questions in your text as examples, formulate four questions
you could ask your clients when they present for treatment to help you determine the cause of
the psychiatric symptoms.
7. People who are dually diagnosed are often difficult to treat. Name three reasons why these
clients may be difficult to treat:
8. Imagine that you are the counselor and you suspect your client has both a substance
use/abuse and mental health disorder. How would you approach telling the client? What
would you do if your client were resistant to the diagnoses?
A Deeper Look
9. Traditionally, how does society view alcoholism and addiction? Do you share that view?
Why or why not?
