Case Study

A 29-year-old single, pregnant woman is brought to the emergency department by the police after they picked her up attempting to break into a grocery store. When they apprehended her, they noticed that she “seemed high” and that she was sweating with dilated pupils. The patient admits to “doping” daily for the majority of the six months and losing 15 pounds in the past 3 months. She claims that her habit now costs more than $100 per day, although she used to get the “same high” for $20. When intoxicated, she describes her mood as “really good” and that she has “loads” of energy. When she does not use, she craves for the drug, becomes very sleepy, feels depressed, and has a large appetite. She has tried to quit on numerous occasions, even entering an inpatient treatment program at one point, but she always quickly begins using again. The patient used to work part-time as a secretary, but she lost her job as she was chronically late and, in fact, stole money in order to pay her dealer. She freely admits that she was trying to rob the grocery store to “pay off my debts.”
