Drug Abuse Research Instrument Inventory. Fourth Edition and Supplement.
Ferneau, Ernest W., Jr.
The Drug-Abuse Research Instrument Inventory is a listing of instruments used in drug-abuse research which have been added to the Inventory essentially by searching all the relevant literature of the past ten years, and through spontaneous submissions from the field. The Inventory also includes references, descriptions, etc. Most instruments listed are those generally referred to as behavioral or psychological and are primarily of the paper-and-pencil variety. The Inventory is intended as an aid to researchers interested in locating appropriate measures of variables for drug-abuse studies or methodological work. The Inventory is divided into six sections: Attitudes; Measurement of Subjective and Objective Effects of Drugs; Differentiation and Characteristics of Abusers; Access and Extent; Education and Knowledge; Program-related and Evaluation. Cross-references to instruments in other categories appear at the end of each section. New editions of the Inventory and supplements are sent to the original sources for verification of the accuracy and completeness of their entries. Although most instruments pertain directly to drug abuse and its various aspects, a few instruments do not have drug oriented questions, but are general psychological instruments listed here because of their use in studies of drug use and abuse.
