Abstract [en]

Objectives:

The Addiction Severity Index (ASI) is a standardized interview used to assess problems associated with substance use. Although widely used, the time required for the interview remains an obstacle to its acceptance in many clinical settings. We examined if a self-administered questionnaire based on the composite score (CS) items, the ASI Self-Report form (ASI-SR), offers a reliable alternative to the ASI in assessing current substance use and related problems.

Methods:

Participants were 59 treatment seeking individuals entering outpatient programs at the Addiction Psychiatric Clinic at Uppsala University Hospital who were assessed with Swedish versions of the ASI and ASI-SR. Agreement between the ASI interview's CS and ASI-SR's CS was evaluated on the individual basis by intraclass correlation analysis (ICC) and on group level with the Wilcoxon signed rank test. Reliability and internal consistency were evaluated using Cronbach's alpha.

Results:

For 6 out of 7 CS domains, the ICC for the ASI interview and ASI-SR were good to excellent. Internal consistency was acceptable for 6 out of 7 CS domains on the ASI interview and for 5 out of 7 CS domains on the ASI-SR.

Conclusions:

The present study suggests that the ASI-SR is a reliable alternative to the ASI interview for assessing current patient functioning and evaluation of problems related to alcohol and drug use.
