ASSIST Questionnaire

The ASSIST is one of the longer screening tools and can take as long as 10 minutes to complete;  it covers alcohol, tobacco, and illicit drugs rather than just alcohol.

  • Brief 8 question screening questionnaire that is self administered or done via interview.  It begins by identifying which substances have been “ever used” and then asks a series of questions about each substance (including one about injecting drugs).
  • Developed for the World Health Organization (WHO).
