can anyone give me a hand?

  1. what are the possible preconceptions if your client (a 22 yrs old university student who has taken Ketamine once). I mean, what assumption that you may make (regardless of yr ethic and professional issues.) Thank you very much!:smiletea2:

    A) that he was experimenting

    B) that he may be using other drugs

    - maybe using it as a recreation drug, unaware of the dangers
    - raves - maybe he's wondering about out-of-body experiences
    - also is an analgesic - does he have pain?
    - also a bronchodilator - does he have bronchospasm?
    - peers (peer suppliers? peer pressure?)

    That he thinks he's an animal, and that the Special K was prescribed by his vet....

    Took it once?

    I'd probably think he was lying, because drug addicts lie. Its part of the disease of addiction.

    Sorry, but the "I only did it once" is a common one. Could be that he was at a rave and it was an experimental thing - but I'd see what else he was "experimenting" with as well.
