This website contains a variety of resources. Click on “NIDA Screening Tools and Resources” to learn about the NIDA-Modified Alcohol, Smoking, and Substance Involvement Screening Test or NMASSIST. The target audience for this curriculum is clinicians in general medical settings (mainly primary care). The modified ASSIST includes an initial pre-screen which determines if a person has engaged in binge drinking, used tobacco products, and used illicit drugs. Only people who report illicit drug use complete the ASSIST. Physicians are directed to other protocols for heavy drinkers and tobacco users.
