Describe an aftercare outpatient treatment plan for Jack that will address his ongoing need for treatment, relapse prevention efforts, and specifics of monitoring compliance.

For this Discussion Board, please complete the following:

Jack T. is 22 years of age, unmarried, and unemployed. Growing up, he lived in a low-income neighborhood that had a high crime rate and fell in with a group of adolescents who had histories of delinquency. He started smoking cigarettes and drinking alcohol at the age of 13 and soon began experimenting with marijuana and painkillers. His family life was unstable because his father was unemployed and an alcoholic who took out his anger on his wife and two children, including Jack.

While in his teens, Jack avoided spending time at home as much as possible, and his peer group experimented with drugs and alcohol. Jack has been convicted of theft. As part of his probation, Jack underwent evaluation for his substance abuse issues, which identified narcotics (specifically heroin) as his drug of choice. He completed detoxification, and is about to complete a 30-day inpatient treatment program.
