Add to My Toolkit
Description:

The Alcohol Use Disorder and Associated Disabilities Interview Schedule -IV (AUDADIS-IV) is a fully structured diagnostic interview designed to assess alcohol, drug, and mental disorders according to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition (DSM-IV), diagnostic criteria in both clinical and general populations.

Protocol Name from Source:

Alcohol Use Disorder and Associated Disabilities Interview Schedule-IV (AUDADIS-IV)

Availability:

Publicly available

Personnel and Training Required

The interviewer must be trained to conduct personal interviews with individuals from the general population. The interviewer must be trained and found to be competent (i.e., tested by an expert) in the completion of personal interviews. The interviewer should be trained to prompt respondents further if a "don’t know" response is provided.

Equipment Needs

While the Alcohol Use Disorder and Associated Disabilities Interview Schedule-IV (AUDADIS-IV) was developed for administration by computer, the literature suggests that these questions can be administered in a noncomputerized format. Hasin et al. (1997) and Grant et al. (1995) used the AUDADIS in paper-and pencil-format, while Grant et al. (2003) obtained data with the computerized format. If the questions are administered via paper and pencil, it is essential that the proper skip pattern is followed.

Requirements
Requirement CategoryRequired
Major equipment No
Specialized training No
Specialized requirements for biospecimen collection No
Average time of greater than 15 minutes in an unaffected individual No
Mode of Administration

Self-administered or interviewer-administered questionnaire

Life Stage:

Adult

Participants:

Adults aged 18 years and older

Specific Instructions:

Hand the Supplemental Drug Card to the respondent to use as a guide for common drug names before asking them to recall problems associated with drug use for their relatives and spouses/partners.

This measure was previously included in the Alcohol, Tobacco, and Other Substances (ATOS) Supplemental Information as "Substances - Family history of substance abuse" and was promoted to the Toolkit on February 24, 2012 by the Working Group on Assessment of Substance Use and Substance Use Disorders.

The Substance Abuse and Addiction Working Group acknowledges that the following questions may gather sensitive information relating to the use of substances and/or illegal conduct. If the information is released, it might be damaging to an individual’s employability, lead to social stigmatization, or lead to other consequences.

Most researchers assure confidentiality as part of their informed consent process, as required by their institutional review boards. Further assurance of confidentiality may be obtained by applying to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for a Certificate of Confidentiality, which helps researchers protect the privacy of human research participants. The procedures for the Certificate of Confidentiality can be found at the Grants Policy website of NIH: http://grants1.nih.gov/grants/policy/coc/index.htm.

Selection Rationale

The Alcohol Use Disorder and Associated Disabilities Interview Schedule-IV (AUDADIS-IV) was chosen because it has been used in a large epidemiologic study, National Epidemiologic Survey on Alcohol and Related Conditions (NESARC), containing adults with a wide age range and different ethnicities. The questions from this survey have been validated, and they are low burden. While originally developed as interviewer-administered, AUDADIS has been validated in several modes of administration.

Unlike other validated instruments that probe only first-degree relatives, AUDADIS-IV captures first- and second-degree relatives.
