Zoctra is a 20-ycar-old Caucasian female who recently aged out of the foster care system and has few resources. She was removed from her family ot origin as a young child due to chronic substance abuse in the home and parental neglect. She had been transitioned between several foster homes during her youth, and therefore had great difficulty forming secure attachment relationships with caregivers or friends.
During her teens. Zoctra coped w ith her loneliness, anxiety, and sense of hopelessness by sneaking prescription pain pills from her foster lather’s medicine cabinet. She found herself caught in a pattern in which she experienced crav ings for the drug and w ithdrawal symptoms w hen she went too long without it, she felt as though she needed the drug just to feel “normal,” and she became preoccupied with thoughts about the drug
Eventually, Zoctra resorted to stealing in order to oblain prescription pain pills from acquaintances in the neighborhood. She was recently caught, and having tested positive for opiates, she was referred to substance abuse counseling with you as an alternative to jail. In order to support herself she does odd jobs with minimal contact w ith other people – such as cleaning * but she has on rare occasion done some babysitting for her neighbors. She lives in a 2 BR apartment with 3 roommates – also transitional age youth – whom she rarely sees or speaks with. Zoctra wants to get on her feet but reports being at a total loss of where or how to start, and she is unable to verbalize any long-term plans.
