Timeline: 2020 – 2021

Since 2011, the Division and the Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility (FAAR) have engaged in an ambitious clinical software development and research agenda. This engagement has produced the Computerized Assessment & Referral System (CARS) and its variants, numerous conference presentations, training events, research reports, editorials & special series, and peer reviewed papers. CARS-5 was released at the end of the first quarter of 2020. The release of this most recent version of CARS has resulted in user feedback and testing that has produced a list of recommendations for a CARS-5 update to the screener module. The Division is currently developing this updated version of CARS-5.
