Introduce a New Community Program – Availability Ends

Adolescent alcohol and other drug problems are rampant in your small community. You are a licensed psychologist employed as a Human Resources Director at the largest employer in your community. As a contribution to the community, you have been asked to establish an alcohol and drug program. You want to select a program name that is professional, but that people will remember, and a description of services and clients who will be served, which is sufficiently broad to attract clients. Once it is open, you plan to hire certified drug and alcohol counselors. In the interim, you will be the director and only employee.

Prepare an announcement with accompanying article for your local newspaper to introduce your alcohol and drug program. Reference your areas of expertise, your training, and any relevant experience. In your article, you must discuss fee schedules, payment options, and your policies regarding insurance billing. Include any other relevant information regarding the successful launch of your program while remaining in compliance with ethical standards. Be creative; include any visual aids, charts, or images you feel will enhance your article.

Length: 5-7 pages, not including title and reference pages, but including any supportive visual aids
