WHAT IS THE ADDICTION SERVERITY INDEX?

The Addiction Severity Index (ASI) is a semi-structured instrument used in a face-to-face patient interview conducted by a clinician, researcher, or trained technician. It was developed by A. Thomas McLellan, Ph.D. and colleagues at the University of Pennsylvania in 1980. The ASI covers seven (7) important areas of a patient’s life: medical, employment/support, drug and alcohol use, legal, family/social, and psychiatric. The instrument is designed to obtain lifetime information about problem behaviors as well as focusing specifically on the 30 days prior to assessment. The ASI has high reliability and validity, as confirmed in studies published in leading journals. It is an addiction assessment tool widely used throughout the United States and other countries.
