Topics may include, for example, an ethnic group, adolescents, older adults, sexual minorities, persons with co-morbid disorders, men or women, methadone maintenance, or impaired professionals—among others. Summarize what you learned about working with these client populations with reference to addictions. Summarize, in your own words, what your learned from the readings about the particular population you chose. What are the salient points to keep in mind when working with these groups? What particular challenges do these groups face? Are their particular barriers to assessment, diagnosis, and treatment? What surprised you? What assumptions were challenged? What types of treatment modalities seem to best fit this group and why? What considerations must you keep in mind when selecting the treatment modality? What skills should a social worker possess (if any) in addition to the accepted ones, when working with this population?

For whom might this treatment be best?
