American Psychiatric Association Adapted NIDA Modified ASSIST Tools

Revised November 2015

For further clinical evaluation and research, the American Psychiatric Association (APA) has adapted the NIDA-Modified ASSIST for adults and adolescents (ages 11-17) to self-administer the screening tool and for parents/guardians to administer with their children (ages 6-17).  These measures are considered by the APA as “emerging measures” and should be used to enhance clinical decision-making but not as the sole basis for making a clinical diagnosis.  Please visit the APA site for more information.
