What does Caitlin have? Caitlin is 16 and for the last year, she has gone to house parties every weekend with her school friends. Every time before she goes to a party Caitlin worries about whether she will do something embarrassing and whether she will be able to socialize well and obsesses over what outfit she will wear. She calls her friends to see what sort of outfit they are wearing. Caitlin sculls a few alcoholic drinks before she leaves the house and then gets a blind drink when at the party. She feels this is the only way she can be 'fun' and she likes how her worry goes away when she is drunk. One week Caitlin was the designated driver for her friends and she was so worried about attending a social event without drinking that she canceled sick so she wouldn't have to go to the party. Caitlin doesn't do drugs other than alcohol and doesn't have any other medical conditions.
