At the age of 29, Marvin was single and had been honorably discharged from the Army. Initially, he had joined the Army intending to earn money to complete his college education. However, after managing only two years of a four-year program, he had to drop out due to financial constraints and the desire to avoid accumulating loan debt. Uncertain about his academic path, Marvin enlisted in the Army and was stationed in a combat unit in Afghanistan. His time there was a mix of both positive and deeply distressing experiences. The haunting memories of his service often plagued his sleep, causing him to fear falling asleep and reliving those nightmares. Consequently, he resorted to combining his prescribed sleeping pills and antidepressants with alcohol in order to attain some rest, despite being aware of the risks involved. “I combine prescription sleeping pills and my antidepressant with beer just to get a little sleep” he states.  Presently, Marvin is employed at a convenience store. However, his recent incident of falling asleep on the job has resulted in his boss warning him that another occu
ence will lead to termination he stated “The boss told me today that I’ll be fired if I fall asleep on the job one more time.” This has left Marvin in a state of great distress and anxiety, as he is unable to afford his apartment and fears becoming homeless. Although he states, “My parents say that I can live with them”, Marvin is reluctant to stay with them and be a burden to them with his troubles. He is overwhelmed and perplexed, yearning to regain stability, complete his education, establish a career, and start afresh. Marvin states “I want to start living again”, but he finds himself at a loss, unsure of where or how to begin. It is for these reasons that Marvin seeks the assistance of our agency.

Concerning regaining to take control of his life, he was extremely confused and perplexed. He expressed a strong desire to restore stability and resume his daily routine he stated “I really want to get stabilized.” He wants the agency's help, as he found our agency to be a community-based, one-stop shopping kind of place. He required support to realign his life, achieve stability, and em
ace a fulfilling existence once again. Since then, he has been grappling with the question of how and where to begin. He seeks guidance and suggestions on completing his education and pursuing a career. Mr. Brown needs a plan on how not to mix the two medications with alcohol and a strategic plan on how he can succeed in his goals and aspirations.

However, instead of being discouraged by these circumstances, he remains resolute in his determination to rebuild his life and continue his educational and professional endeavors.

Case Scenario One – Marv Brown
Hi. My name is Marvin Brown but most people call me Marv. I am glad that I found your agency. I’ve a lot going on in my life and I hope you can help. I am 29 years old and single. I was discharged from the Army with an honorable discharge. I joined the Army to make money to finish college. I made it through two years of a four year program but I had to drop out because I ran out of money and, I didn’t want to rack up a lot of loan debt. To be honest, I didn’t know what I wanted to study. So, I joined the Army and was stationed to a combat unit in Afghanistan. I had some good experiences and some very bad ones. Sometimes, it’s like I am back in Afghanistan. I have nightmares that are so real I am afraid to go back to sleep. Sometimes, I combine prescription sleeping pills and my antidepressant with beer just to get a little sleep. I know it’s dangerous. Half the time, I feel out of it. I work at a convenience store. The boss told me today that I’ll be fired if I fall asleep on the job one more time. I can’t afford to stay in my apartment, and I am afraid that I will be homeless. My parents say that I can live with them but I don’t want to be a burden. I want my own place.
So, that’s it. I told you that I had a lot going on. I heard that you were a community-based, one-stop shopping kind of place. I know that I need help to get my life back on track. I really want to get stabilized so that I can start living again. I want to finish my education, too, and have a career. I just don’t know how and where to start.
