Accordingly, what does the Sassi measure?
The SASSI identifies individuals who have a high probability of being diagnosed with any type of substance use disorder, including alcohol. It is not a measure of the use of controlled substances.
Beside above, who can administer the Sassi? The Adolescent SASSI (SASSI-A2) should be used with youth between the ages of 12 and 18 years. Exceptions can be made. For example, it may be appropriate to administer the SASSI-4 (adult version) to a 17 year old who no longer lives with his/her parents and is full self-supporting.
Also question is, how long does the Sassi take?
In Session II: Clinical Interpretation you will learn the clinical use of the SASSI scales, screening and assessment information, and how to give feedback to the client. How long is training? Each session is approximately 3.5 hours.
What is the difference between screening and assessment for substance abuse?
Screening is a process for evaluating the possible presence of a particular problem. The outcome is normally a simple yes or no. Assessment is a process for defining the nature of that problem, determining a diagnosis, and developing specific treatment recommendations for addressing the problem or diagnosis.
