    Based upon the initial interview, Bill was given a provisional Axis I diagnosis of "alcohol dependence" and admitted to an Intensive outpatient program. After completion of the initial interview, Bill was given a tour of the facility, a client ' handbook, and introduced to his primary counselor and scheduled an appointment the next day to discuss what the client could expect during treatment and what would be expected of him in return. During his treatment Bill worked with his counselor to develop four primary treatment goals: 1) To spend at least four hours every other weekend with his children; 2) To attend three A.A. meetings a week for the next three months; 3) To abstain from alcohol and all mind altering and mood enhancing substances; and 4) Complete the 12 week Intensive outpatient treatment program. Bill was quite resistant to attending A.A. meetings because of fear of being seen by his friends at meetings. The counselor helped Bill deal with his feelings by encouraging him to "A, B, C" his thoughts about what people might think of him if seen at meetings and documented the client's progress in his chart with a process note. In addition, Bill was provided a set of videotapes which provided information about the disease concept of addiction, family dynamics, relapse prevention and problem solving strategies to review during his first two weeks of treatment. In the sixth week of counseling, Bill became quite agitated and insisted he was going to have to stop treatment because his work schedule had been changed - four of his employees had quit their jobs and he was going to have to fill in the irresponsibility. His counselor met with him and encouraged him to calm down and accept a change in his daily treatment schedule. Given his limited financial means and approximately $7,500 of debt on his Visa card and the fact that Bill talked excessively about his enormous debt, his counselor sought the advice of his clinical supervisor since financial problems were outside his scope of expertise. The clinical supervisor suggested that the counselor schedule an appointment with a non-profit credit counseling agency near his home. After explaining the discussion with his supervisor, Bill agreed to the appointment. Upon completion of the 12 week program, the client was discharged with instructions to attend 90 A.A. meetings in 90 days and twice weekly aftercare sessions. It was noted that the counselor lived less than two blocks from the client and so they agreed to car pool to aftercare meetings.Based on the information found in the case history, please select the BEST response to each of the following questions.
