In learning about stimulants and depressants, the readings from Inaba & Cohen addressed treatment options such as Methadone and Antabuse.
What are considerations and risk factors associated with treatments such as these? Reske & Paulus presented the return of addiction disease as a “multidimensional response pattern”. How might this pattern influence an individual’s relapse when receiving treatments such as Methadone? As a counselor, how can we educate clients about the biological aspects of their addiction in regards to treating the addiction with drugs such as Methadone? What other treatment options are available to clients seeking a treatment other than antagonist approaches?
