Drug of choice?!

As I was doing routine chart checks last month, I came across this notation in the initial assessment of a new client:

"Substance abuse: Client says he smokes marijuana and snorts Smarties."

I wasn't sure if this was a new name for a street drug, so I asked the therapist who'd done the assessment to clarify.

"No, he snorts crushed Smarties candy. He even did a line in my office."

Good point

Patient quote of the week:

"My family tells me 'tobacco is an antipsychotic that will kill you, but keeps everyone else from killing you in the meantime.'"
