Process

Self-referrals are welcome.

Self-referrals will take the ADE Inc. Substance Abuse Life Circumstance Evaluation (SALCE).

ADE Incorporated's Substance Abuse Life Circumstance Evaluation (SALCE) is a 98-question, adult substance abuse evaluation. This instrument measures the respondent's test taking attitude, a measure of how appropriate responses are to survey items. The SALCE may be used as a basis for a personal interview, a psycho-social evaluation or a referral.

The state of New Mexico mandates that those convicted of a DWI are to take the DFA approved screening program which is the ADE Inc. NEEDS survey.

ADE Incorporated's NEEDS Assessment is a 130-question, comprehensive adult assessment tool. This instrument addresses life stress, attitude and emotional stability, criminal history, and alcohol/drug use based on DSM-5 and ASAM guidelines. This instrument may be used as the basis for a personal interview, a psycho-social history, or a referral.

The NEEDS includes 32 additional questions which relate to the stability of significant areas of an individual's life. This profile of the individual can be used as an outline for a diagnostic interview, treatment plan development, or making immediate decisions for referral.

In addition to the SALCE and NEEDS Assessment, our program now implements the following supplemental assessments to better provide services for the individual:

Addiction Severity Index - Lite Version (ASI-Lite)
The Addiction Severity Index, Lite version (ASI-Lite) is a shortened version of the Addiction Severity Index (ASI). The ASI is an instrument used in face-to-face interviews conducted by clinicians, researchers, or trained technicians. The ASI covers areas that include medical, employment/support, drug and alcohol use, legal, family/social, and psychiatric. The ASI obtains information about problem behaviors, as well as problems within the previous 30 days. The ASI-Lite has 22 fewer questions than the ASI and omits items that are related to severity ratings and a family history grid. 

Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9)
The Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9) is a multipurpose instrument that assists clinicians in screening, diagnosing, monitoring and measuring the severity of depression as well as selecting and monitoring treatment.

Mental Health Screening Form-III
The Mental Health Screening Form-III (MHSF-III) was initially designed for clients seeking admission to substance abuse treatment programs. The MHSF-III contains questions that reflect the respondent’s entire life history and are answered with either “yes” or “no.”
