NIDA Tobacco, Alcohol, Prescription Medications, and Other Substance (TAPS) Tool

Developed by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), the Tobacco, Alcohol, Prescription Medications, and Other Substance (TAPS) Tool is designed to elicit responses regarding an individual’s use of tobacco, alcohol, and drugs. The first part, consisting of four questions, deals with the respondent’s use of tobacco, alcohol, and/or drugs on a daily, weekly, monthly, less-than-monthly, or never time basis for the 12-month period prior to completing the screening tool. The second part, consisting of nine questions, asks the individual to provide responses for the prior three months.
