  2. 2. Origin ADDIS Adolescents is a Swedish interpretation of the American instrument SUDDS – Substance Use Disorder Diagnostic Schedule, developed by Ph.D Norman Hoffman, Ph.D Patricia Harrison; translated to Swedish by Lynn Wickström.

  3. 3. Target group ADDIS Adolescents is developed for indivduals between the ages 13 – 20. It differs from the original ADDIS instrument in that it provides an oppurtunity for the interviewer to make more intricate assessments in order to minimize the risk of over diagnosing young people.
  4. 4. What is it? ADDIS Adolescents is a structured interview questionnaire aimed to explore an individuals relationship to mind altering substances. The interview will lead to a diagnose/diagnostic assessment in compliance with ICD-10 and DSM-5 criterias.

This leads to comorbidity issues, cognitive complications and increases the risk of premature deaths. It is therefore of outmost importance to identify all drugs that a person has used. Different drugs gives different specific injuries, and should be identified in order to provide relevant treatment. The substance list is updated continuosly.
