ORDER NOW FOR AN EXCELLENT PAPER FROM HEALTH CARE PAPER GURUS :Social Problem: Addiction Discussion

Dear Social Problems Students,

This week during lecture we began looking at one particular public issue: Addiction. We watched an episode from the A&E series Intervention, “Nichole’s Story”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_fxEJQy3vQc

Based on the ideas presented in the course readings, the points made during lecture, as well as material from “Nichole’s Story,” here are two questions for you to write about:

1.  How can people who are, by definition, chronically afflicted by a disease that is beyond their own personal control be empowered to master this disease through participation in a therapeutic community?

2. In what ways does this documentary paint addiction as a chemical problem? In what ways does it paint addiction as a social problem too?

Please draft a written response to either #1 or #2. Your choice.

Your written responses must be between 500-600 words.

The paper must have cites from two readings!!!!

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes. Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages. Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor. The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
