W​‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‌‌‌‍‍​eek 7 Assignments Chapter 12: Gender and Sexual Orientation Differences As we have seen, people often turn to addictions to escape some unpleasant reality in their life. For Siggy it was job loss, Fran wanted to escape the trauma of child abuse. What if someone is finding acceptance with themselves, but struggling with a society and possibly loved ones who don’t accept them for who they are? Sadly, this is an unpleasant reality for many people who identify as LGBTQ+. This does not mean all people in this population abuse drugs, just that we need to be aware of this stigma and to help this at-risk population avoid drug use as well. Please therefore look at this case to determine the cause and the risks for LGBTQ+ individuals.

 Read the following case study: Hal Crisp is a 19-year-old young man who thinks he might be gay and likes to go clubbing. His parents disapprove of this, not only because they are embarrassed, but because they think that the ecstasy, meth, and other drugs at the clubs are dangerous. Hal says that he goes clubbing because that’s the only place he feels accepted. He says he certainly does not feel accepted by his family. Refer to the following guide: “A Practitioner’s Resource Guide: Helping Families to Support Their LGBT Children” (produced by Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration – SAMHSA) Using what you have learned in the above resource guide, and in Chapter 12, and this week’s field trip, write a 300-word top level post that responds to the following questions in ESSAY format:

 1. How would you approach this client and this case as an addiction counselor? 

2. Do you think Hal is at risk for addiction? Why or why not? (Be sure to FOCUS ONLY on the information provided in the ​‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‌‌‌‍‍​case study. Do not make assumptions!)

 3. What special considerations would you keep in mind given that this client might be struggling with his sexual orientation?

 4. Would you involve the parents? Why or why not? If so, how? Discussion Board Week 7 In the wake of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, the USA PATRIOT Act gave the U.S. president broad powers to combat terrorism. Using these powers and those he claimed were inherent presidential powers under Article II of the U.S. Constitution as the commander-in-chief, President George W. Bush issued an executive order authorizing the National Security Administration (NSA) to launch a program it called the Terrorist Surveillance Program (TSP) to prevent more terrorist attacks on the United States. (Take some time to research the NSA TSP Program, and the PATRIOT Act) With this information along with the materials in the e-text and required resources please answer the following: 

1. Was the NSA’s Terrorist Surveillance Program conducted illegally? 

2. Does the NSA’s program go too far? 

3. Or is it all necessary and legal? 

4. And what about President Obama’s use of NSA to retrieve the data (without reading the actual material) from American’s phone use through the providers?

 5. Was there a legitimate national security interest in tracking these calls? 

6. Or was this an invasion of our privacy? Week 7 Assignment In two concise paragraphs 

1. Discuss two special issues that female prisoners may encounter during incarceration and the programs that positively assist these inmates. Include a relative scenario.
