The Drug-Taking Confidence Questionnaire (DTCQ), a companion tool to the IDTS, allows substance use counsellors and researchers to identify a client’s self-efficacy in relation to 50 drinking and/or other drug-taking situations. The DTCQ can be administered:

  • at assessment, to aid treatment planning
  • during and at the end of treatment, to monitor a client’s progress, or
  • post-treatment, as an indicator of treatment outcome.

The DTCQ is flexible, effective and easy to use. It consists of two separate questionnaires: one pertaining to alcohol and one pertaining to other substances of abuse. Each questionnaire measures a client’s confidence in the same 50 risk situations.

This User’s Guide provides full instructions on how to administer the DTCQ and includes all relevant validity data.
