Triage Assessment for Addictive Disorders-5 (TAAD-5)

The TAAD-5 is a brief structured interview designed to identify current alcohol and drug problems. This 10-minute assessment tool covers all DSM-5 criteria for substance use disorders. It offers high internal reliability. The TAAD-5 produces alcohol and drug use disorders profiles similar to those of more time intensive instruments.

A technician or paraprofessional can administer the TAAD-5 for interpretation by a qualified professional. A scoring summary is incorporated into each instrument and can be completed in 2-3 minutes.

Applications:
  • Any situation requiring fast, initial discrimination between a likely substance use disorder or no diagnosis.

  • Ideal for preliminary triage to determine if a treatment referral or intake assessment is indicated.

  • Other settings for use include:

    • a quick initial assessment of DUI/DWI offenders.

    • initial EAP assessments, mental health clinics, primary care settings or emergency rooms.

    • initial field assessments by child protection, welfare workers or other social service providers.

Benefits:

  • Offers a quick assessment of current substance use disorder criteria.

  • Provides support for substance use disorder diagnoses in minutes.

  • Documents negative findings for those individuals who do not see problems.
