Assessment Summary

Substance Abuse Questionnaire (SAQ)

The Substance Abuse Questionnaire (SAQ) is a 153-item self report computer scored test for adult (male and female) screening. The SAQ screens for substance (alcohol and other drugs) abuse, hostile or belligerent attitudes, defiant or resistive behavior and stress handling abilities. The SAQ is particularly useful in counseling, substance abuse screening and counseling/treatment clinics.

Staff report writing, substantiation of decision making and record keeping needs are met with SAQ reports. The SAQ is HIPPA compliant and ASAM compatible.
