The World Health Organization (WHO) has developed several questionnaires related to substance abuse that are used in research and clinical settings to assess patterns of substance use and related issues. Some of the key WHO substance abuse questionnaires include:
Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT): A 10-item questionnaire designed to screen for alcohol use disorders and related issues.
Drug Abuse Screening Test (DAST): A 20-item questionnaire designed to screen for drug use disorders and related issues.
Severity of Alcohol Dependence Questionnaire (SADQ): A 20-item questionnaire designed to assess the severity of alcohol dependence.
World Health Organization Quality of Life (WHOQOL-BREF) questionnaire: A 26-item questionnaire designed to assess quality of life across multiple domains, including physical health, psychological well-being, social relationships, and environment.
World Mental Health Composite International Diagnostic Interview (WMH-CIDI): A structured diagnostic interview designed to assess the prevalence of mental disorders, including substance use disorders, in the general population.
These WHO substance abuse questionnaires are widely used by researchers, clinicians, and public health professionals to assess patterns of substance use, screen for substance use disorders, and inform treatment planning and evaluation. They are based on rigorous scientific standards and have been tested and validated in multiple settings and populations around the world.
