With the assessment results prepare a thorough treatment plan for the case of Cristina.
Fictional Case Scenario:
Cristina is a 32-year-old, single, Chinese-American, lesbian female who works for the county sheriff’s office. She has been on the force for 4 years. Cristina has been referred for evaluation and treatment through the employee assistance program (EAP) after receiving a DUI. Cristina has requested treatment through the EAP, which allows her to receive treatment services in lieu of termination, although she will have to complete any treatment recommended in order to retain her employment.
Cristina began drinking heavily when she attended the state university as an undergraduate. Studious and hyper-focused on academics in high school, Cristina found herself enjoying the frequent and ubiquitous parties she was exposed to in college. She received one underage citation in college, which was stricken from her record after completing an ARD program. She was not as academically successful as she or her family expected in college, but did graduate with a degree in criminal justice. After qualifying for law enforcement employment, Cristina found herself drinking fairly heavily again to cope with the stressors of working in law enforcement, finding it especially difficult to feel welcomed by colleagues as a female, ethnic-minority officer. Her drinking has caused other job issues prior to the DUI, including overuse of sick leave and excessive absences, and colleagues reporting their suspicion that Cristina is drinking on the job to superior officers.
Along with problematic alcohol use, Cristina has begun to experiment with cocaine use. She has found herself using cocaine to try and offset reduced energy and motivation at work, along with increases in lethargy, apathy, and hopelessness.
Your treatment plan should include identifying information, presenting problems, and diagnostic impressions. The bulk of your treatment plan will then focus on specific problems, goals/objectives, and interventions. Your treatment plan should identify 7-10 problem areas, with 10-15 goals/objectives (each problem area should have 1-2 goals/objectives that correspond to the problem area), and 10-15 interventions (each goal/objective should have at 1-2 specific interventions that correspond to the goal).
Your treatment plan must show awareness and responsiveness to the unique identities and diversity represented in the case of Cristina.
