    • (e.g. Albert [borderline personality disorder with comorbid alcohol use])
  • Next, describe the patient’s symptoms and the available demographic and historical data.
    • If new terminology is introduced, be sure to explain to your peers what this entails.
  • Analyze the differences between the diagnosis of the person identified in your case study and a similar illness/diagnosis.
  • Discuss the available treatments for your case study.
  • Evaluate the health and social risks, as well as costs, of alcohol or substance use disorder.
  • What do you think about how our society handles this problem? Is there more we should be doing or is society too involved in this issue?
