TCU Drug Screen

Texas Christian University (TCU) Drug Screen 5 is an updated version of the TCU Drug Screen II and is based on the most recent Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5). The TCU Drug Screen 5 screens for mild to severe substance use disorder, and is particularly useful when determining placement and level of care in treatment.

Texas Christian University (TCU) Drug Screen II is self-administered and serves to quickly identify individuals with a history of heavy drug use or dependency (based on the DSM and the NIMH Diagnostic Interview Schedule). It is particularly useful and widely used as a tool in criminal justice settings for identifying offenders eligible for treatment services (see Knight, Simpson, & Hiller, 2002).
