This article provides a conceptual framework for the use of self-report measures in assessing alcohol and drug abuse. It reviews the use of self-report measures for assessing a number of different issues, including screening for substance abuse; traditional scales used to identify drug or alcohol abuse; timing of clinical assessment within an alcohol/drug treatment program; specific psychological tests that have particular utility within the area; and identification of patients with dual disorders. The article highlights the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory-2 (MMPI-2), but the results can be generalized to other self-report measures such as the MacAndrew Alcoholism Scale-Revised, Addiction Admission Scale, Addiction Potential Scale, Alcohol Use Inventory, and Millon Multiaxial Clinical Inventory.
