Qualifications for Test Purchase
Our substance use measures are carefully developed assessment instruments that require proper administration, scoring, and interpretation. Therefore, eligibility to purchase, administer, and/or use these measures is limited to individuals with training and experience in the area of assessment.
The SASSI may be used by anyone with at least one of the following:
- Human service practitioners whose certification is in a mental health discipline
- Certification as an addictions professional
- Completed course in psychological testing and assessment
- Completed authorized SASSI training
- Master or doctorate in social work, psychology or a counseling discipline
The BADDS may be used by:
- Human service practitioners whose certification and/or professional training includes assessment (such as psychologists, social workers, certified addictions counselors)
Individuals who do not have professional training can administer and score the instrument if there is appropriate supervision. (It is suggested that you contact your state or provincial government for specific information on the laws regulating assessment and testing in your state or province.)
