Several models are prominent in the field of addictions; these models include the medical model, moral model, and the biopsychosocial model. A particular model advocated by an addictions professional will influence the professional’s choices of assessment methods and treatment of addiction.

 

To prepare:

  • Consider the following definition of addiction by Michael Miller, M.D., former president of the American Society of Addiction Medicine: “At its core, addiction is not just a social problem or a moral problem or a criminal problem. It is a brain problem whose behaviors manifest in all these others areas…The disease is about brains, not drugs. It is about underlying neurology, not outward actions” (Addiction Treatment Magazine, 2011).

Assignment Directions:

  • Review the article, “New Definition of Addiction Causing Controversy Among Doctors.” (See Reference)
  • Research two articles that support or refute this position.
  • Examine Miller’s statement and, based on your research, identify which model it reflects and the implications for the assessment process. (See attached for addiction models)

Submit by Day 7 a 3- to 4-page paper (Not including title or ref. pg.) that includes the following:

  • A brief description of the articles you chose and an explanation of their significance to Miller’s definition
  • An explanation of the model reflected in Miller’s statement and its implications for the assessment process
  • An explanation of the controversy that exists between models of addiction and their effects on assessment
  • An explanation of the relationship between the models of addiction and assessment processes

Cite your sources using APA guidelines including citing within paper).
