Alcohol Screening
For some people, it may be impossible to notice when one is in danger of moving from alcohol abuse to dependency. Here is a quiz to help identify some of the warning signs. Please take a look at this assessment and let us know what you think. (Click on the link below.)  Do you think these questions are appropriate, based on your understanding of the process of moving from substance abuse to addiction?

Write a 1,050- to 1,400-word paper in which you identify abused substances and their various effects. Include the following:
• Explain the psychology and physiology of addiction.
• Identify specific drug substances covering the following categories: stimulants, depressants, narcotics, hallucinogens, and cannabis.
• Discuss the addiction potential of various abused substances, what effects they have, and withdrawal symptoms.
• Discuss how prescription drugs can be abused and lead to addiction.
Use at least three outside sources, such as articles from the University Library.
Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.


LT Discussion of Group Support

Read the Learning Team Lecture: “AA: What to expect?” (Click on the link below.). The founders of AA believed that two alcoholics working together to remain sober have a better chance than one person attempting it alone. Do you believe this is true? Why or why not? Have you or anyone you know ever overcome an obstacle that you or they believed was impossible? Did you or they do it alone or with others? What is or was your initial reaction to being notified that 30% of your grade depends upon the successful cooperation of the learning team?

Please remember that a Learning Team discussion should read as if it were written by one person rather than as a collection of individual responses. There is no “I” in team.
Your response to this DQ should be at least 250 words.

Discuss in your Learning Team and summarize your discussion. Remember: there is no “I” in team. Post your summary in the Assignments Section.
