When athletes take drugs to get high or have fun it is called recreational use (Meer 22). All athletes do this to relieve the pressure that they are under during a game or whatever the sport they are participating in. This is by far the most common use for drugs in sports in the world today because of its relaxing effects. Performance enhancing drugs, PEDs, are available from multiple sources to enhance the performance of athletes (Meer 22-23). PED’S are the safest type of drugs for use by an athlete wanting to use, all in all, they have more positive effects on health than that of other drugs that are used.

Preface The objective of this book is to provide social work students and other professionals working in mental health and substance abuse treatment the fundamental knowledge and skills to assist them in using the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) or the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems manual (ICD). Although, in this book, we will use the criteria from the DSM-IV TR, these manuals are the same in many important ways. They both contain a list of similar criteria that is intended to differentiate one disorder from the other. Because the diagnostic process depends on clinical judgment, the task is to use a diagnostic process that will support knowledge of human behavior to determine one of the mental health diagnoses based on clinical criteria from these manuals. The foundation for developing this skill is learning to use the rule out approach where the diagnosticians go through specific steps in the diagnostic process ruling out disorders until they find the diagnosis that is the best-fit between the diagnosis and the person’s symptoms.

Obesity can be defined as a condition, which results from the accumulation of excess fats in one's body. This phenomenon comes about because of lack of physical activities, which are important in burning excess calories in the body, thus balancing the ratio of food consumed to the energy expelled. Therefore, lack of these physical activities leads to accumulation of excessive calories in the body, which are then converted to body fats (Jakicic et al, 2003). In fact, research shows that in the past decade obesity cases have significantly risen, a trend that has been associated with improved technology, which has lessened people’s physical movement. For instance, people can order for food and call for cabs, via mobile apps, thus limiting their physical movement, which is an important part of physical exercises.
If effect, exercise is the medicine (Elrick, 1996), not the equipment. In some cases, exercise is believed to be better than any medication. Therefore, the health benefits made by the Stair Master ad, which are cited above, are supported by research. However, one can reap these benefits from any form of cardiovascular exercise (walking, running, cycling, or swimming) that is less expensive and readily available (Elrick, 1996). The Stair Master is not exclusive for preventing these diseases.
Boundaries and Ethical Implications As a result of research and advancements in biomedical science, psychotropic medications have become a primary tool in the holistic treatment of mental health concerns (Kaut & Dickinson, 2007). Education regarding psychopharmacology is now recommended for all mental health professionals in accordance with the ethical codes for the profession (King & Anderson, 2004). Counselors must also navigate their roles with regard to medication and client concerns carefully to avoid liability, while acting in the best interest of the client. Part of the ethical code for a professional counselor involves education about current research developments and trends in the field of mental health (Linde, Erford, & Cheung, 2010). Psychopharmacology is an example of such advancement that would require attention.
I learned about the effects of relaxation techniques on mental and physical health. I discovered that there are many therapeutic alternatives that can be used as either healthier replacements for pharmaceuticals or as co-treatments with pharmaceuticals to bolster their effectiveness. My 2014 internship with the Hampton-Newport News Community Services Board further developed my interest in the field of public health. I worked as a mental health and substance abuse case manager assistant.

Today, there is an abundance of ongoing research being done to search for more treatments and a cure to Huntington’s disease. Clinical trials are being conducted to test new drugs that can help patients with Huntington’s. One of these trials involves a drug called creatine which prevents brain cells from shrinking. It is currently being tested of Huntington’s patients and has been showing some positive results (HDSA). Personally, if I was facing living with Huntington’s disease, I would likely join a support group to cope with the emotional and psychological effects of the disease.
