10 A seventeen year old girl is arrested for possession. She denies using drugs saying she was given some just before arrested. She is pregnant. Recently the procedure has been to jail pregnant chemical abusers until delivery to protect the unborn child. As this is the child’s first arrest the judge is reluctant to do that. As your treatment center provides education to that precinct your center was called. What course would you advise?
  1. Administer the TWEAK and give the results to the judge to decide.
  2. Administer the TWEAK, interview the adolescence and parents to determine the extent of the drug usage. Recommend appropriate treatment outside of jail if the interview and assessment indicates a beginning drug dependency and one is available that is better than jail.
  3. Do your best to persuade the judge to keep the adolescent in jail until delivery as releasing her would put the child at risk.
  4. Talk to the parents about begging the judge to refer the adolescent to your treatment center as you treat adolescents and have a good program.
