Help Illicit Drug use.

Hey Guys,

Could someone tell me what would be an ideal counseling for Illicit drug use by the SP?

Does that depend on the drug used by the SP and also do we need to learn the different drug overdoses and withdrawal symptoms to be able to counsel or arrive at Ddx?

Thanks in advance.

I don't think we need to go into such intricate details for counseling.. As shown in cse videos telling the patient that our institution has a good program and blah blah shud suffice... But even I want someone to confirm this... Thanx for this post... I never thought so deeply about dat....
