ASI & SASSI Assessments
The ASI-MV by Inflexxion is an internet-adapted version of Dr. A. Thomas McLellan’s Addiction Severity Index (ASI). ASI-MV allows clients to access and self-administer their own interviews on the web while using audio and video as a guide. Additionally, on-screen interviewers introduce the client to the program, present the questions, and offer further explanations and examples when needed, similar to a live interviewer. Severity Ratings are automatically generated within ASI-MV by using a research-tested algorithm developed by Inflexxion. The Composite Scores are also automatically generated within ASI-MV Online and use the mathematical formula developed by Dr. A. Thomas McLellan.
Inflexxion is offering one year of free access to the ASI-MV product (a $500 value) to readers of Addiction Private Practice and members of APN. To claim your free year of service call or email Tanya Baertsch at (503) 802-9884 or email@example.com. Let her know that you have read the book and are a member of APN.
The SASSI-4 assessment is a fast and accurate screening tool for substance use disorders and their severity. SASSI Online is a web-based system for the administration and analysis of SASSI questionnaires. Through your secure workspace, SASSI Online enables you to order and administer questionnaires, receive immediate scoring of clients’ responses, and review client results and profile reports, all using a standard web browser and an internet connection. Free clinical consultations available on all reports.
