The Substances and Choices Scale (SACS) is a brief screening and outcome measurement instrument for assessing and monitoring the use and impact of alcohol and drugs in young people. It is designed to be used by health professionals working with young people that are engaged in a treatment or support agency. It is a one-page pencil and paper instrument that is self-administered and takes about 5 minutes to complete. It measures the frequency of use of a range of substances, and records the symptoms, behaviours and consequences associated with substance use over the previous month.
