The Alcohol Use Disorder and Associated Disabilities Interview Schedule-5 (AUDADIS-5): reliability of substance use and psychiatric disorder modules in a general population sample.Drug Alcohol Depend 2015; 148:27-33DA
The purpose of this study was to assess the test-retest reliability of substance use disorder and psychiatric modules in the Alcohol Use Disorder and Associated Disabilities Interview Schedule, Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5) Version (AUDADIS-5).
Kappa and intraclass correlation coefficients were calculated for DSM-5 substance use and psychiatric disorder diagnoses and dimensional criteria scales using a test-retest design among 1006 respondents drawn from the National Epidemiologic Survey on Alcohol and Related Conditions-III (NESARC-III).
Reliabilities of substance use disorder diagnoses and associated criteria scales were generally good to excellent, while reliabilities for mood, anxiety and trauma and stress-related disorders and associated scales were generally in the fair to good range.
The observed reliability of the DSM-5 diagnoses and dimensional scales for the substance use and psychiatric disorders found in this study indicates that the AUDADIS-5 can be a useful tool in various research settings, particularly in studies of the general population, the target population for which it was designed.
