Abstract

The Millon Clinical Multiaxial Inventory, which includes a drug abuse scale, was administered to a group of known drug abusers several times during the course of treatment. The scoring characteristics of the drug abusers in this sample were found to be consistent with those of drug abusers used in the MCMI standardization sample. Group scores obtained in the present sample on the MCMI drug abuse scale at intake and after 1 and 3 months of treatment show considerable consistency. The results suggest that this drug abuse scale may be measuring relatively enduring characteristics, uninfluenced by treatment, at least in the short term.
