About the SASSI Institute
The SASSI Institute is committed to helping people who suffer from alcohol and other drug problems and the professionals who serve them. Our questionnaires are backed by over 25 years of research, one-to-one customer service, and a commitment to quality.
Who We Are
The SASSI Institute was formed in 1988 with the publication of the first Substance Abuse Subtle Screening Inventory (SASSI). Most of what we do falls under the headings of publishing, clinical consultation, research, training and customer service.
More than 20 years after the initial SASSI was released, we have become a leading publisher of psychological measures specializing in screening instruments for substance use disorders. In this period of time, the adult SASSI has been revised twice, and a Spanish language version has been developed and validated. In addition, the adolescent SASSI has been published and revised, and research continues to tailor the SASSI to other types of individuals with special needs.
More recently, we have collaborated with Drs. Stephen Hupp and Jeremy Jewell to publish their Behaviors & Attitudes Drinking & Driving Scale (BADDS). The BADDS not only provides helpful information for the difficult task of evaluating individuals who have been arrested for DWI/DUI, but can also be used to assess the effectiveness of drinking and driving intervention programs.
Clinical Consultation (go)
- Highly qualified clinicians provide SASSI customers with free consultation on the administration, scoring and interpretation of all measures sold by the SASSI Institute.
- Collaborative research projects are ongoing with treatment providers, criminal justice entities, and universities to refine SASSI instruments and aid in the development of new psychological measures.
- Customized measures for state, criminal justice, and mental health agencies have proven to be highly useful in meeting specific programmatic needs. Our research department is dedicated to working collaboratively with such entities to meet their screening and assessment needs.
- We are fortunate to have over 80 counselors across the U.S. and Canada who specialize in substance use screening and who are available to train other professionals on the administration, scoring and interpretation of SASSI measures.
Customer Service (go)
- In addition to providing superior customer service, our staff is at the core of our operations and are ready to assist callers with all of their customer service related needs.
- We have developed partnerships with other distributors and publishers of psychological measures to make our measures accessible globally.
