Drug addiction and treatment

This paper is to be 810 pages (not including abstract, title page, and reference page). It must be in APA format including in-text citations and references. You must have at least 10 sources, 3 of which may be books, but the rest must be journal articles that date back no further than 10 years. This assignment must be submitted no later than 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Monday of Module/Week 7.
Your paper will have 2 distinct sections. The sections are as follows: Overview and Recovery Plan; under Recovery Plan, your sub-headings will be: Logistics, Treatment Plan, and Issues in Treatment.
1.) Overview
In the overview section you will want to discuss several components. First, discuss the symptoms and characteristics of the addiction. Explain the etiology and genetic factors that may be involved. Note what usually happens during withdrawal and what medications may be used in coping with withdrawal. Also, be sure to discuss the statistics of this particular addiction. How much does it cost the U.S. every year? What are the statistics of the different ethnicities struggling with this addiction, etc.?
2.) Recovery Plan
Logistics
In this section, you will organize a treatment plan for the addiction in either a group or an individual counseling setting. Be sure to discuss your target population (i.e. adolescent boys). Discuss where these sessions will take place (i.e. church, hospital). Also, explain which model you will be using (i.e. medical disease model, see Presentation: Models of Treatment 401). Summarize the model and explain how you will integrate it. Additionally, describe who will be involved in the process (i.e. family, pastor, etc.). Be sure to describe how you would integrate faith in the treatment process. How might your approach be different for the Christian vs. a non-Christian?
Treatment Plan
Explain how many sessions your treatment plan will consist of. Describe how you would use specific assessments to assist in diagnosis and in treatment planning. Then, in detail, discuss the process of how each stage and phase will progress. What treatments and interventions will you be using? Be sure to have research backing your interventions at each stage. For example, if you will use intakes in your first session, what intakes will you use?
Issues in Treatment
Conclude by discussing different obstacles you will face in implementing this recovery plan. What are some ethical issues you will need to be aware of and prepare for? How will you screen for, address, and work with issues of co-morbidity? What co-morbidities are you likely to find with this specific population? Lastly, address any other issues linked to this particular population.
