Vocational Rehabilitation of the Drug Abuser: Treatment Planning and Clinical Supervision. No. 5 in a Series.
Wolkstein, Eileen; Richman, Alex
An outline of vocational rehabilitation of the ex-addict is presented, with emphasis placed on the development of treatment plans, counselor inservice training, and clinical procedures. Discussion is based on the Beth Israel Medical Center (BIMC) programs of Methadone Maintenance Treatment and Alcohol Treatment. Section 1, Proceedings, defines goals for vocational rehabilitation and discusses the ex-addict, counseling techniques, and counseling forms developed by the BIMC program. The needs of the patient are stressed in planning systematic treatment, and a summary of sources of influence on the client-counselor relationship are provided. Section 2, Clinical Profiles, examines three cases in terms of the impact clinical procedures have had on the patients for whom problems were assessed and plans developed. Each case study discusses rationale for selection, patient profile, plan formulation, initial and revised treatment, and followup, where applicable. The BIMC project is reviewed. Appendixes discusses project background, a vocational rehabilitation program within the Methadone Maintenance Treatment, the Alcohol Treatment Programs, and Drug Addiction Service Staff participation in the research project. Vocational Structured Interview and Semantic Differential Forms, comments, and an editorial seminar agenda and its participants are also appended. (LH)
