This paper reports on the acceptability, reliability and validity of the Structured Clinical Interview for the Spectrum of Substance Use (SCI-SUBS), a new instrument exploring the interactive pathway between substance abuse and psychiatric disorders. Psychiatric outpatients with (n = 21) and without (n = 32) substance abuse comorbidity according to the DSM-IV, non-psychiatric subjects with opioid dependence (OD, n = 14) and normal controls (n = 33) were assessed with the SCI-SUBS. The presence or absence of psychiatric disorders was determined with the Structured Clinical Interview for DSM IV (SCID). The SCI-SUBS was well accepted by participants. The internal consistency of the domains was satisfactory (between 0.64 and 0.93). Domain scores of OD subjects were significantly higher than those of controls and of psychiatric patients without substance abuse. The cut-off point on the SCI-SUBS total score at which there was optimal discrimination between the presence and the absence of a DSM-IV diagnosis of substance abuse was 45. The pilot version of the SCI-SUBS has satisfactory internal consistency and construct validity.
