Addiction has an impact on every aspect of an individual’s life, making a holistic approach to treatment essential. Fortunately, many treatment programs have adopted a team approach to treatment. This provides the opportunity to address the addiction, the physical and emotional consequences of the addiction, and other related issues. For example, in addiction treatment centers, the clinical staff may address a client’s psychological needs while the medical staff addresses their medical and physical well-being.
For this Discussion, review the week’s resources and the media piece, “Team Approach to Addiction Treatment.” Explore the strengths and limitations of the team approach to addiction treatment. Think about how a client might respond to a team approach versus a single person.

Post an explanation of two strengths and two limitations of using a team approach to addiction treatment from the perspective of an addiction professional and from the perspective of a client. Support your response using the resources and the current literature.
