Overcoming Chemical And Behavioral Addictions

Consider this scenario:

As a new professional, you have two new clients for whom you are providing services. During your initial assessments, you note that one client reports using alcohol and prescription medicine to control her weight. She is frustrated by her lack of weight loss and often ends up binging on fast foods. Your other client has sought treatment because he is struggling with an Internet pornography addiction.

Post a brief description of the two clients whom you selected and whether each has a chemical (physical) or behavioral (psychological) addiction. Then, explain one potential challenge for each client in overcoming his or her addiction. Support your response using the Resources and the current literature.
