DSM-IV-TR Casebook Diagnosis of "Better Living Through Chemistry"
Ray, age 22, brings his brother Danny, age 17,
to the emergency room at 3:00 A.M. on
a Sunday morning. Upon returning home from a date, Ray found Danny
stumbling about their parents' basement den crying and
mumbling, "Everything is blurry and double." Ray
says that his brother cursed him out on the way to the hospital.
He says that Danny drinks alcohol and smokes both tobacco and marijuana,
but he doesn't know of any other drug use.
