Case Discussion


Case Study

Lawyer, Beginning
to Use Daily


Clinical Management

A forty–year-old man who comes to your office asking to be treated
with buprenorphine. He is a criminal defense attorney in private
practice, and he knows about buprenorphine because you are
treating some of his clients. His goal is to use buprenorphine during
the week and occasionally use heroin (by snorting) on the
weekend. He has used heroin for the past 5 years.

Lawyer, Beginning To Use Daily


He describes that for the past 6 months, he has continued to use
heroin primarily on the weekends, but is concerned because he
has begun to use small amounts of heroin daily. If he doesn’t do
this, he has loose stools, becomes irritable, and has difficulty
getting and staying asleep. He has no desire to completely stop
heroin use, but he doesn’t want to use it during the week.

His passion is playing jazz and he has organized a band. He says
that heroin use is common in the club where his band plays. All
the members of the band use heroin and many of his friends who
come to the club also snort or inject heroin. He rarely buys heroin,
as his friends usually give it to him.

Lawyer, Beginning To Use Daily


His only other drug use is marijuana and alcohol (3-6 drinks/night
on the weekend), again primarily used on the weekend. He has
never been arrested or had significant medical consequences
from his heroin use. He is not married. He has a 14-year-old son
who he has supported and sees often.
