The Adolescent Alcohol and Drug Involvement Scale (AADIS) and Adolescent Drug Involvement Scale (ADIS) are screening tools for adolescent substance abuse. The AADIS is the latest version of these tools and includes both alcohol and other drug abuse as a "conjoint" screen. The ADIS and AADIS were derived from the AAIS, and were further developed and field tested using public funds, so have been made available without charge. Users have permission to reproduce the tool at no cost. However, the author has stated that he would appreciate identification of the tool on any reproduction, and citation of source in any articles/publication in which these scales are used.
