Addictions services and transitional outreach: a field practicum report
MetadataShow full item record
This report is a reflective consideration of my MSW graduate student practicum at the Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region’s Addiction Services, an agency which provides several programs and services to address client needs in the Regina and surrounding area. My practicum objectives were for me to improve my knowledge in the area of addiction services and to specifically develop a program model to transition addiction clients who required housing into homes in the community. The result of my practicum was the creation of the Transitional Outreach Program (TOP) Model which I believe addressed the scope, objectives and learning activities identified in my MSW Practicum Proposal. This paper utilizes the Direct Practice Framework outlined for MSW Integrative Practicum Reports with headings that include: Ideology, Theory, Values, Ethics, Relationships, Strategies, Skills and Visions. It is through this identified structure that existing Addiction Services Programs and the TOP Model are explored. This report bridges both the theoretical and practice implications present in my practicum experience. Relevant literature is considered in relation to existing Addiction Services Programming and for the TOP Model.
