Examine Miller’s statement and, based on your research, identify which model it reflects and the implications for the assessment process. (See attached for aIDiction models)

Several models are prominent in the field of aIDictions; these models include the medical model, moral model, and the biopsychosocial model. A particular model advocated by an aIDictions professional will influence the professional’s choices of assessment methods and treatment of aIDiction.

To prepare:

  • Consider the following definition of aIDiction by Michael Miller, M.D., former president of the American Society of AIDiction Medicine: “At its core, aIDiction is not just a social problem or a moral problem or a criminal problem. It is a brain problem whose behaviors manifest in all these others areas…The disease is about brains, not drugs. It is about underlying neurology, not outward actions” (AIDiction Treatment Magazine, 2011).

Assignment Directions:

  • Review the article, “New Definition of AIDiction Causing Controversy Among Doctors.” (See Reference)
  • Research two articles that support or refute this position.
  • Examine Miller’s statement and, based on your research, identify which model it reflects and the implications for the assessment process. (See attached for aIDiction models)

Submit by Day 7 a 3- to 4-page paper (Not including title or ref. pg.) that includes the following:

  • A brief description of the articles you chose and an explanation of their significance to Miller’s definition
  • An explanation of the model reflected in Miller’s statement and its implications for the assessment process
  • An explanation of the controversy that exists between models of aIDiction and their effects on assessment
  • An explanation of the relationship between the models of aIDiction and assessment processes

Cite your sources using APA guidelines including citing within paper).
