As has been discussed previously, the DSM-5 saw substantial changes to the diagnoses associated with addiction. In fact, it could be argued that the new diagnostic structure in the substance-related and addiction section better serves the treatment process, as it focuses in functional impairments across domains, rather than specific quantities of use. As such, it also supports a more strength-based, wellness perspective, as the client’s overall health and individual experience are key aspects of diagnosis.

Such a focus is also the case with the commonly used screening and assessment tools. It is important for counselors to be well versed in the use of instruments, and to understand the strengths and limitations of each.

For this Discussion, after reviewing Chapter 7 of your text, you will select two assessment tools discussed on pages 300-302. Use the Walden Library to find at least one peer-reviewed article discussing the utilization and reliability for each instrument selected.

Post by Day 4 a brief description of the two assessment tools you selected and application. Then, describe one strength and one shortcoming of each, using specific examples to illustrate your points. Lastly, describe how the assessment tool might be used to support a provisional diagnosis of a substance-related or addictive disorder.
