History of Drug and Alcohol Related Legislation and Policies

In each of the weekly assignments, you will use this scenario regarding Dave’s life circumstances. You will explore a different aspect of Dave’s drug involvement related to law, mental health, and corrections each week.
Dave was born in Harris, New York, to Julie Smith and Joseph Green. He has two younger brothers, ages twelve years old and three years old. All have different fathers. Mom reports that her youngest son is suspected to be on the autistic spectrum (severe). She is following up with treatment recommendations for him. She reports moving the family in August 2019 to Florida from Oregon to escape Domestic Violence from her youngest son’s father, who was verbally abusive and addicted to Methamphetamine (Meth), and opioids. Both currently deny any physical abuse. Mom reports she realized she had to leave when she found Meth in their home. She had obtained a no-contact order for him, but he still came to the house.
Dave reports he lived with his Dad in New York for a while but moved because his dad is an alcoholic, and they would argue a lot. He talks with his dad regularly. His dad is still in N.Y. He served during Desert Storm as a sniper and retired from the army. Dave states he loves his dad but cannot live with him. He states he hates living with his mother’s friend, and when he is of age, he will return to Oregon.
Dave’s mom also states she is currently being treated for cancer. Dave reports this does not bother him. He wanted to die a long time before she developed cancer. He states, “I don’t want to live, but I won’t kill myself. I don’t want to go to hell; if there’s a heaven and hell.”
Dave began drinking alcohol at age 15. At his most substantial use, he was drinking a bottle of vodka daily. He began smoking cigarettes at age 14 and continues to smoke regularly. Dave reports he has tried benzodiazepines, mushrooms, ecstasy, and opiates. Most of Dave’s drug consumption was done with friends from his neighborhood. As Dave’s mental health and drug abuse got severe, he would steal from friends to get money for his drug habit, which drove most of his friends away. Even his part-time job was lost because he would be late or not show up for work. During one cycle of severe depression, Dave was in contact with his cousin, Bill, who was involved with transporting opiates across Mexico’s border for the drug cartel. Because Bill had two years in the military deployed to the middle east on desert patrol, he successfully used a land vehicle to drive through the desert to remote areas where the wall was on the border but few border guards. He had devised a system to launch bags of opioids over the wall to a cartel member on the other side, the border patrol foiled Dave’s plan, and Dave spent five years in federal prison for his part in the crime, and this was his second offense of drug-related crimes. Lastly, Dave currently uses Cannabis and is addicted to opiates.
Bill was Dave’s drug supplier of opioid pills. Dave allows Bill to store some of the drugs at Dave’s residence to pay for the pills. Dave is currently suffering from depressive episodes, along with addiction to opioids and alcohol. Dave’s family is now homeless but staying in a homeless shelter with a designated unit, and he is on probation for theft and possession of opioid pills.
Dave has been diagnosed with the following:
First – (296.99/F34.81) Disruptive mood dysregulation disorder
Second – (304.30/F12.20) Cannabis use disorder, Severe
Third – (301.83/F60.3) Borderline Personality Disorder
