Addictive disorders can be particularly challenging for clients. Not only do these disorders typically interfere with a client’s ability to function in daily life, but they also often manifest as negative and sometimes criminal behaviors. Sometime clients with addictive disorders also suffer from other mental health issues, creating even greater struggles for them to overcome. In your role, you have the opportunity to help clients address their addictions and improve outcomes for both the clients and their families. For this Assignment, as you examine the Levy Family video in this week’s Learning Resources, consider how you might assess and treat clients presenting with addiction.
Assess clients presenting with addictive disorders
Analyze therapeutic approaches for treating clients with addictive disorders
Evaluate outcomes for clients with addictive disorders
Review this week’s Learning Resources and consider the insights they provide.
Review the Levy Family video Episodes 1 through 5.
In a 2- to 3-page paper, address the following:
After watching Episode 1, describe:
What is Mr. Levy’s perception of the problem?
What is Mrs. Levy’s perception of the problem?
What can be some of the implications of the problem on the family as a whole?
After watching Episode 2, describe:
What did you think of Mr. Levy’s social worker’s ideas?
What were your thoughts of her supervisor’s questions about her suggested therapies and his advice to Mr. Levy’s supervisor?
After watching Episode 3, discuss the following:
What were your thoughts about the way Mr. Levy’s therapist responded to what Mr. Levy had to say?
What were your impressions of how the therapist worked with Mr. Levy? What did you think about the therapy session as a whole?
Informed by your knowledge of pathophysiology, explain the physiology of deep breathing (a common technique that we use in helping clients to manage anxiety). Explain how changing breathing mechanics can alter blood chemistry.
Describe the therapeutic approach his therapist selected. Would you use exposure therapy with Mr. Levy? Why or why not? What evidence exists to support the use of exposure therapy (or the therapeutic approach you would consider if you disagree with exposure therapy)?
In Episode 4, Mr. Levy tells a very difficult story about Kurt, his platoon officer.
Discuss how you would have responded to this revelation.
Describe how this information would inform your therapeutic approach. What would you say/do next?
In Episode 5, Mr. Levy’s therapist is having issues with his story.
Imagine that you were providing supervision to this therapist, how would you respond to her concerns?
Support your approach with evidence-based literature.

Levy Family: Episode 5
FEMALE SPEAKER: It was such an intense story. I just kept seeing things the
way he did, you know. The weird green of his night-vision goggles, his sergeant
screaming for Jake to kill him. I just keep seeing it all in my head.
MALE SPEAKER: Why, do you think?
FEMALE SPEAKER: Why what?
MALE SPEAKER: Why do you think you keep thinking about this story, this
FEMALE SPEAKER: I don’t know, maybe because it’s so vivid. You know, I went
home last night, turned on the TV to try to get my mind off it. And a commercial
for the Marines came on, and there was all over again– the explosion, the
screams, the man dying. Such a nightmare to live with, and he’s got a baby on
MALE SPEAKER: Could that be it, the baby?
FEMALE SPEAKER: Maybe. That’s interesting you say that. I mean, the other
vets I work with are older, and they have grown kids. But Jake is different.
I just keep picturing him with a newborn. And I guess it scares me. I wonder if
he’ll be able to deal with it.
