Development of a Novel Polysubstance Assessment Tool for Vulnerable Subpopulations
Funded by: National Institute on Drug Abuse
Project dates: July 2021 - June 2026
Principal Investigator: Bunting, Amanda

The goal of this project is to use a rigorous mixed-method approach to develop and validate a novel polysubstance use assessment tool for use with vulnerable subpopulations (i.e., justice-involved, persons who inject drugs) and identify correlates and motivations of polysubstance use behaviors among this population to inform the development of future targeted interventions. The ability to accurately measure polysubstance use among high-risk populations is a critical step towards developing effective strategies for improving substance-related health outcomes of this population.
