Gender differences in the validity of the substance abuse subtle screening inventory--3 (SASSI-3) with a criminal justice population.
Int J Offender Ther Comp Criminol. 2011 May; 55(3):476-91.IJ

Abstract

The Substance Abuse Subtle Screening Inventory-3 is a brief, self-administered screening tool designed to measure the probability of having a substance dependence disorder. The present study assessed the validity of this instrument with an inmate population using a DSM-IV diagnosis of substance dependence as the criterion measure. The study also examined instrument validity by gender. Findings revealed differences in the prediction of dependence between male and female inmates. The advantages and shortcomings of the instrument are discussed in light of these findings, and suggestions for future research are advanced.
