The Substance Abuse Subtle Screening Inventory minimizes the need for toxicology screening of prenatal patients.
Multiple authors have reported attempts to effectively address the discovery of substance abuse in pregnancy using various mechanisms to encourage positive self-reports and urine toxicology to augment identification.
In this study, we evaluated 1,251 patients with (a) self-report, (b) the Substance Abuse Subtle Screening Inventory (SASSI), and (c) urine toxicology screening to determine which modality or combination would yield the most cost-effective discovery.
Combining the SASSI with the self-report was the most clinically effective and cost effective mode of discovery.
This led to the development of a clinical protocol using the SASSI and self-report with limited use of urine toxicology for specific patient subgroups.
Alcohol abuse, which is missed by toxicology and self-report, is detected by the SASSI.
