This paper will try to explain the different views of how and why Alcoholics Anonymous and other 12-step programs are accepted and rejected as effective tools in treating alcoholism and other addictions. The articles reviewed contradict the others opinion. First, we see that supporting the 12-step programs with a degree of involvement both the doctor and patient will see better results in treating the addiction. The second view will show that 12-step programs can be used as self-help treatment and must be used in conjunction with other forms of rehabilitation.

Victimology - 1,491 words
I entered this class I had a fairly good idea of what to expecWhent. The title speaks for itself. Victimology is the study of those who have been victimized. As a criminal justice major this is a class that I must take and also a class that I was eager to take. I heard other students speak In Law Enforcement an officers main goal should be to do everything in their power to keep the public safe. As the slogan goes To Protect and Serve. An officer should put the victims or potential victims ahead of all other things. In too many situations the police do not give enough care to the victims.

Gun Control - 912 words
Over the past decade the issue of gun control has been a hot topic. The ability to own a gun is considered by some a birthright of Americans. However, with crime rates involving handguns rising each day it has become quite clear. Handgun laws must become more stricter in order to reduce homicide and crime. Danial Blackman is one example of a dangerous man who was allowed to carry a concealed weapon despite prior criminal behavior. In February 1996, the former candidate for judge in Broward County, Florida, threatened to put three bullets in the head of a meter maid who had written him a ticket, behavior that should have prevented him from carrying a concealed handgun but did not. Though he w ...

The Disorder Of Anorexia Nervosa - 788 words
Anorexia nervosa, more commonly known simply as anorexia, is a psychological disorder that can have devastating physical affects. Anorexia nervosa is an irrational fear of gaining weight.

... s the chance of replication beyond its own setting, which is vital in being able to justify the use of CBT as a viable intervention for Schizophrenia. In this case experienced psychiatric nurses trained in CBT successfully treated the patients this alone makes CBT a more viable option for intervention as it means more health care professionals fall within the scope of being able to provide treatment.
