    Abstract

    Screening is an important practice for systematically identifying at risk alcohol and other drug (AOD) use. As part of the development of an online collection of commonly used AOD screening tools, a desktop review of the Alcohol, Smoking and Substance Involvement Screening Test (ASSIST) was conducted to ascertain appropriate populations, diagnostics, utility, resources and knowledge gaps. This overview is the result of that review.
