This essay will require you to explore the role of culture in assessment and treatment. Create a hypothetical case by first identifying an individuals culture (military, female, African American, college student, New Yorker, etc), and secondly a substance abuse problem (alcohol, cocaine, methamphetamines, opioids, etc). Then describe a specific treatment strategy that would be sensitive to the persons culture and their addiction. Think about how the person self-identifies with the culture, cultural explanation of the illness, cultural practices re: the substance, and treatment barriers. I want you to carefully consider how a treatment plan might look different for an American Indian with an alcohol addiction vs. a homeless person with a meth addiction, for example.
