Bills assessment revealed that his risk levels were not so severe that state-supported inpatient treatment could be justified, but it was clear he could not return either to his mothers or fathers home.
He did have an alternative, and one that worked for him.
The writer goes into considerable detail about who is most at risk, why teenagers start drinking in the first place, and some of the things we could be doing to reduce the growing number of teenagers turning to alcohol. Most anyone who has been drinking and has been asked to hand over the keys argues that he is fine or she is not drunk.
Watching them stumble out the door is evidence enough that what they think and what is reality are two completely different things. : This 15 page paper takes the position that those who kill while driving drunk should be charged with murder. : A 7 page research paper arguing quite strongly that alcoholism is, in fact, a hereditary disease linked to our genes.
The writer suggests that there are a number of events that can cause the alcohol or chemical-dependent individual to seek help and bases the proposed study on these suppositions. : A 7 page paper that favorably debates the issue of lowering the drinking age.
The paper shows why it would be in the governments best interest to let states decide their own policies on drinking ages, and why states should lower drinking ages to 18. : A 9 page research paper on the problems associated with teenage drinking in today's society. What happens to a person's body when alcohol is consumed precludes the operation of any equipment -- especially an automobile -- but one of the very influences is that the person thinks he or she still has the ability to drive.The writer discusses the various influences alcohol has on the body, as well as offers some sobering statistics on fatality rates. Many solutions to the drunk driving challenge have been explored including raising taxes on liquor, police efforts, raising the drinking age, using special license plates to designate repeat offenders and more. Using the findings of specific studies in books and journals, the writer debunks the myth that alcohol is a social disease and that the only familial influences are those related to peer pressure and modeling.The paper concludes that despite the efforts made to combat the problem, drunk driving continues. Both sides of the argument are weighed, assessed, and the ultimately conclusion that alcoholism is hereditary-- is reached. : A 9 page psychology paper on how to intervene to help an alcoholic.While researchers are adept at describing the effects of other, less controversial, chemical compounds that arise and are manifested in changes of gene expression, they seem to be unable to apply the same methods of research to issues connected with alcoholism.Every recovering alcoholic who has been reconciled with his God, either through restitution of a prior relationship or his own first-time meeting understands the power of denial, and that denial of sin does nothing to diminish its existence. : The physical, psychological and social effects of cocaine are examined in this 5 page overview. : A 25 page thesis that considers the impact of early onset use of crack cocaine and deviant criminal behavior in youth populations.Bibliography lists nine sources, all sources have been published since 1992. : A 10 page paper discussing the psychology, motivation, and results of alcohol abuse in college students.Reasons such as anxiety, peer pressure, and family history of alcohol abuse figure most prominently in the factors motivating college-age drinking. : An 11 page paper that describes the pre-intervention assessment methods and the facts behind the substance abuse habits of a loving but highly angry 16-year-old boy.It is argued based upon statistical data and scholarly example that the "drug problem" in the U. is not nearly as terrible as we are led to believe it is. Bibliography lists the 5 sources analyzed within the body of the paper.: An 11 page paper discussing the problem of drugs in America, as well as other parts of the world, and why the war on drugs has failed.Heroin addicts face many challenges related to their health, including but not limited to HIV/AIDS. : An 8 page paper that argues against the legalization of marijuana from a sociological and psychological perspective. : A 7 page research paper evluatively assessing whether or not drug abstinence programs can work for addicted people.The writer suggests that while there is considerable data about the usefulness of this drug from a medical standpoint, the general legalization would have considerable social and psychological implications. Psychological factors determining how effective such programs will be are discussed throughout. : 8 pages based upon findings in five journal articles which maintain that the social programs and ideas such as "The War on Drugs" are overreaching political ploys to distract our attention from the real issues at-hand.
