CARS DSM-5

CARS DSM-5 (CARS-5) Conversion Project 2018

Principal Investigator: Sarah Nelson, PhD
Funder: Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility
Timeline: 2018

The Division on Addiction CARS project has led to the development, testing, modification, and implementation of a valuable assessment resource for DUI programs and beyond. CARS screens for 18 DSM-IV (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) defined disorders and fully assesses for 12 of those disorders. During 2013, the American Psychological Association released the DSM-5. This project will convert CARS to a valid DSM-5 screening and assessment tool.
