Substance Abuse/ Lit review – Dis 3/ Dis 4

1. Substance Dependence and Mental Health – What is the Connection? Discussion 3

In the textbook this week you read about the use of a variety of drugs in response to mental illness/mental disorders. But, can those drugs actually “cure” mental disorders? Some argue that pills have become the first line of treatment for a wide variety of symptoms, ailments and disorders, regardless of their treatment value. Do you think that the pill prescribers are simply making matters worse by facilitating substance addiction in people with mental health issues?

2. Current Literature Review Discussion 3

Task: Reply to this topicThe Effects of Cocaine on the Family

Find a scholarly journal article (NOT just information posted on a website!) that relates to the effects of cocaine use on the family/family system. Your article should be no more than 5 years old.

SUGGESTION: post your article title and author in the Subject of a post early in the week as a placeholder so that you will not duplicate articles (duplicate articles/posts will not receive credit); edit the post when you have read the article. Note: your “placeholder” does not meet the Thursday deadline requirement.

Post a 8-10 sentence summary of what you learn from the article (i.e., main points), include the citation and a link to the article so that we all may read it. Attach the article to your post so that others may review and discuss in their peer posts. Note: do not simply look at the abstract and post some words that you see included there. Read the entire article and provide a solid summary/synthesis of the information in your post. Do not quote material from the article. I expect a well-developed scholarly post.

3. Pregnancy and Alcohol Discussion 4

In a post of at least 150 words, respond to/discuss the following statement – Women who repeatedly get drunk while pregnant should be arrested and kept in jail or in a residential treatment program until the baby is born. Explain your reasoning!
