Product Details

SASSI instruments help guide appropriate treatment and are useful in a variety of settings such as substance abuse treatment centers, criminal justice programs, behavioral health centers, social service programs, and other healthcare organizations.

Benefits

  • Distinguish SUD from other psychological disorders.
  • Enhance SUD identification through subtle items that are added to the SAT scale.
  • Screen for SUD along the DSM-5 continuum of severity (ranging from mild to severe).
  • Identify the probability of substance abuse among adolescents and get insight into clinical issues teens face (e.g., emotional pain, level of acknowledgement of the substance abuse, social system impact).
  • Detect substance use disorders in clients who are unwilling or unable to acknowledge substance misuse and symptoms associated with it.
  • New Prescription Drug scale helps identify individuals who are likely to be abusing prescriptions medicines.
