Substance-use disorder (SUD) affects roles, identity, and quality of life and limits activities of daily living and social engagement. This session reports the results of a qualitative study utilizing interviews and surveys of OTs in mental-health settings to determine what assessments they use for persons with SUD. Results show that OT practitioners primarily use nonstandardized and some standardized assessments to evaluate persons with SUD.
