use, psychological, social, familial, physical, occupational, legal, and interpersonal consequences
of substance use, diagnosis, current stage of change and prognosis. The Treatment Plan must
include Goals/Outcomes, Who will be involved in treatment, what specific interventions
(education/questions/reflections) will you provide this patient, in counseling session focus,
outside of session homework assignments, and how you will help this client (and family) after
they had a relapse while under your care. State the problem; State the goal that the client wants
to attain; State at least one Objective; and state one intervention that you will do to help your
client achieve his objective to meet his/her goal. Your treatment plan must be Specific, Time
Framed, and Measurable.* Be sure to include information pertaining to what countertransference
issues you could explore so that your own biases about substance users/addicts don’t get in the
way of you successfully treating David. There is additional information on how to complete this
assignment on uLearn.
