Disclaimer: **THIS ASSIGNMENT REQUIRES YOU TO WATCH A 1 1/2 HOUR MOVIE** and is for those in the SOCIAL WORK field.

– I have attached a document that explains what the BPS+ model is, and I have also attached a YouTube link to the movie 28 Days.


  • Explore a film related to substance use and demonstrate your understanding of the BSP+ model (bio-psychosocial plus approach to addiction) through an analysis of that piece of media (in this case it’s the movie 28 Days)


  • Analyze the themes (Addiction as Suffering – Treatment, Change & Recovery, and The Cultural Construction of Addiction, alcohol) using the BPS plus model
    • how does the addiction theory help you understand alcoholism (drug culture)?
    • Does the depiction of addiction issues in the movie shed a new or different light on addiction issues?
    • Identify key issues related to addiction in the movie
