One of the goals of the treatment center you work at is to eventually open a new, modern treatment facility. You will be working with a team to research the current treatment models used in the field and current issues that will need to be addressed. The team will make recommendations to propose a plan for a new center.
Before starting this assignment, come together as a group and decide on what style of treatment center you are going to recommend.
As a member of this team, you will need to choose 1 treatment model used in the type of treatment facility your team has decided to recommend. Also, how would you go about developing a plan using that treatment model to address 1 current issue that you will work to improve upon at a new treatment facility? Each group member should pick a different issue to address for his or her individual portion. For example, you might choose one of the following issues: dual diagnosis issues; MR/DD and addictions; mental illness and addictions; addictions and violence; domestic violence; violence in the workplace; criminal activity; sexual abuse; or child abuse and neglect. Individually, write a paper of 1–2 pages detailing the approach the new treatment center should take to address the issue. Be sure to include both short-term and long-term goals.
The type treatment facility that me and group members agree on is mental health and addiction
