Long Paper: The Long Paper asks you to choose an area of interest related to substance abuse treatment. This is an opportunity for you to develop more specialized knowledge about a particular area of
substance abuse treatment. Topics might include, but are not necessarily limited to, the efficacy of partial hospitalization treatment, outpatient treatment of addictive disorders, prison addiction treatment,
treatment of individuals with dual diagnoses (otherwise known as MICA clients), 12 step treatment programs without counseling interventions, treatment of specialized populations (chemically addicted
mothers/pregnant women, treatment with ethnic minorities, etc.). This is not an exhaustive list of topics, and you are encouraged to brainstorm your own potential topic. Topics must be approved by me prior to
submitting your paper by Week 3. The paper should include the following: 1) A biopsychosocial description of the problem or population including recent research findings. 2) A discussion of the social impact
of the problem or population (why is this an important problem or why is this population important?) 3) A review of treatment methods with special attention paid to empirical evaluations of treatment outcomes,
individualization of the treatment process, ethical issues relevant to the problem or population, and special family issues, including issues of relapse, addiction prevention, and program planning of the problem or
population you are discussing. Criteria for evaluation of papers will include clarity, organization, synthesis of material, and overall mastery of content. A good organization will enhance your grade (hint
subheadings will help you organize material). The introduction section should clearly outline what will be covered in the paper. Summarize your thoughts in the concluding paragraph. The paper must be typed
and properly formatted using APA style; the use of proper APA style will be a component of your grade. The paper should be 8-12 pages long. At least 4 primary sources must be used
I would like 8 pages and a reference page ill do a cover page and abstract page.
