Hrm... Looks like one of those trick type questions...  Based on that
assumption here is my best guess at an answer:

  Patient is a student at a university that works on a quarter
  system -- I.e., 3 months of classes = 1 quarter.

  Patient is sober during classes but parties quite hard after her/his
  last final.  As part of this celebration, she/he consumes great 
  quantities of narcotics, well at least one -- alcohol.

  Patient is currently on bedrest because patient has a hangover...

I believe this meets all of the stated criteria...
