What is a SASSI?
The SASSI stands for Substance Abuse Subtle Screening Inventory and is a questionnaire that helps to identify if a person has a high probability or low probability of having a substance use disorder. This questionnaire is completed online and a report is reviewed by our Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor (LCDC) and ready in 1-2 business days.
