The Alcohol-Drug-Screen (ADS) focuses entirely on adult alcohol and drug use or abuse. ADS incorporates its evidence based Alcohol Scale and Drug Scale findings with the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th Edition (DSM-5) Substance Use Disorder classifications.
The Alcohol-Drug-Screen (ADS) is a brief, self-administered evidence based substance (alcohol and other drugs) abuse assessment instrument or test. It consists of 116 questions and takes 20 minutes to complete. From test data (answers) input, the ADS is scored with reports printed within 2½ minutes on-site.
The Alcohol-Drug-Screen (ADS) incorporates five scales (measures): 1. Truthfulness Scale, 2. Alcohol Scale, 3. Drug Scale, 4. DSM-5 Substance Use Disorder Scale, 5. Stress Management Scale.
