dc.description.abstractAddiction related literature suggests that people struggling with addiction do not always respect the rehabilitation process nor adhere to medical advice during the recovery process. The purpose of this senior-level undergraduate internship was to improve processes of a rehabilitation discussion group of high risk patients identified as potential risk of self-discharging against medical advice. After hours of observation and participation, changes were made by student intern & staff to improve identification of these high risk patients and improve attendance tracking. Attendance processes and revised curriculum were altered. As a result, case managers were able to lead improved group discussions. Direct conversations addressing patients' unique issues of concern were evident.
