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. The Division is working to develop a generalized version of the CARS-5 screener that is not DUI-specific. This version of CARS will focus more on the psychosocial risks for relapse and/or mental health crises, rather than DUI recidivism.
