A new township has been incorporated. The area of incorporation has had problems in the past with drug and alcohol addiction. You have been contracted because you were a forensic intake officer for the court at a local mental health facility. The town founder would like you to describe the critical steps in getting an addict into a rehabilitation program and, at the same time, giving him or her the maximum chance of post-rehabilitation success. The town founder would like to know what factors would contribute to the success of a program, and what would need to be done in terms of post-residential rehabilitation to keep the addict from returning to drug abuse.
This will be in a 3–5 page white paper submitted to the city council. You will present your report on the drug as a position paper for approval by the chief and his or her staff.
