  ASUDS-R | Adult Substance Use and Driving Survey - Revised
The ASUDS-R is a 123 item psychometric-based, self-report, differential screening instrument, designed and normed for impaired driving offenders. It is appropriate for clients 16 years or older, and may be administered by self report or interview format. The ASUS-R meets the needs of a self-report instrument that is an essential component of a convergent validation approach to the assessment of patterns and problems associated AOD (alcohol and other drugs) use within impaired driving populations. The ASUDS-R contains all of the scales of the Adult Substance Use Survey-Revised.

The ASUDS-R assesses an individual's AOD use involvement in ten categories of drugs, and measures the degree of disruption that might result from the use of these drugs. Three supplemental scales provide a differential assessment of disruptive AOD use outcomes which are subscales of the general DISRUPTION scale. The ASUDS-R provides a specific measure of the degree of involvement in the use of alcohol, and a specific measure of driving-risk attitudes and behaviors. There is an AOD use benefits scale. It also provides a screen for emotional or mood adjustment problems, a measure of social non-conformity, a measure of legal con-conformity, a measure of defensiveness or resistance to self-disclosure, and a scale to assess motivation and readiness for treatment. It provides measures of AOD involvement and legal conforming for the most recent six month period the client has been in the community.

The ASUDS-R can be used to provide guidelines for assessing levels of AOD problems, abuse and dependence. It can also be used to provide referral guidelines for various levels and types of services for impaired driving offenders. It can be used to assess during and post-treatment changes.

Extensive construct validation studies (e.g., perspective, criterion, concurrent, predictive) have been done on the ASUDS-R scales, using several large samples of impaired driving offenders. As well, for the ASUDS-R scales that are cross-matched with the Adult Substance Use Survey-Revised (ASUS-R), construct validation studies have been done on large samples not specific to impaired driving offenders. Principal components analyses and Cronbach alpha studies of each scale have demonstrated optimal internal consistency reliabilites congruent with the item size of respective scales. Scale independence has been demonstrated. Simple linear and multiple linear studies have demonstrated strong relationships between ASUDS-R scales and external criterion variables (e.g., eternal measures of substance use involvement and disruption, prior treatment, BAC levels, prior impaired driving involvement, etc.). Simple linear relationships between the ASUDS-R scales and perspective variables (age, gender, ethnicity, marital status) support hypotheses around these relationships. The User's Guides for the original ASUDS and ASUS-R provide a detailed summary of scale construct validation studies.

The ASUDS-R is available in a paper-pencil and automated version.
