Depressive disorder

You have been given the task of writing an ongoing article for the upcoming staff newsletters. You are researching and developing special treatments for the dual-diagnosed clients who you will be treating at your new facility. There are many combinations of this type of client; one example would be a client with alcoholism and a depressive disorder.

  • Pick 1 combination, and discuss how this particular client’s needs will be met by the treatment you will provide him or her.
  • Given permission by the client, how will you discuss this with the client and his or her family or significant others?
  • Note that after this is discussed at the next staff meeting, you will be placing the presentation notes in the next staff newsletter. This will be in the form of a short formal paper.

You should include the following for this assignment:

  • Title page
  • Abstract
  • 600–800 words of content
  • Conclusion
  • References, including at least 2 scholarly sources dated within the last year
