Addiction Assessment

Discussion: Interviewing Techniques on Addiction Assessment

Addiction Assessment: One of the best ways to learn how to do an interview is to watch someone else conduct one. This week, you will view a media clip of someone conducting an interview that is part of an addiction assessment. The interview uses a biopsychosocial approach, in that it collects information about medical aspects (prior illnesses, current medications), social history (childhood, school, employment) and psychological functioning (anxiety, depression). The goal of the interview is to start developing an overall picture of the client.

In this Discussion, you will evaluate which interview strategies would be more effective than others in an addiction assessment.
