NIDA Launches Adolescent SUD Screening Tools

NIDA recently released two brief online screening tools that assess for SUD risk among adolescents 12-17 years old. The Screening to Brief Intervention and Brief Screener for Tobacco, Alcohol, and Other Drugs ask patients about frequency of past year use and triages them into one of three levels of substance use disorder risk: no reported use, lower risk, and higher risk. NIDA also discusses how these tools are different, how providers can choose which one, universal and targeted screening, and shares information about considerations for confidentiality among teen patients.
