This Spanish language screening instrument is empirically validated in clinical settings for use with Spanish speaking adults from diverse ethnic backgrounds (Colombian, Costa Rican, Cuban, Salvadoran, Guatemalan, Honduran, Mexican, Puerto Rican).
The Spanish SASSI is:
- Accurate, brief, and easy to use
- A screening measure that can help identify individuals who have a high probability of having a substance use disorder, i.e., substance abuse and substance dependence
- An ideal tool for planning needed services
The auto-report includes each client's overall screening result, as well as identification of key issues affecting each client. The reports are delivered to counselors within two business days (often same day) via e-mail or fax.
An English translation of the blank questionnaire is available on the SRS site for registered counselors.
