Abstract: This study aimed to assess the psychometric properties of the Greek version of the "Substance Abuse Subtle Screening Inventory" (SASSI-3). 508 individuals participated in this study; 248 drug abusers, 49 alcohol abusers and 211 control subjects were nationally recruited in Greece and were asked to fill in the Greek versions of the SASSI-3, the AUDIT and the DUDIT. The Cronbach's alpha coefficients for the full SASSI-3 questionnaire, the FVA and the FVOD scales for the total sample were .84, .93 and .97 respectively, and positive correlations between the FVA scale and the AUDIT (r=.81) and between the FVOD scale and the DUDIT (r=.90) indicate high reliability and convergent validity of the instrument. Mean sensitivity of the full questionnaire and specificity were found to be 96.35% and 92.9% respectively indicating strong predictive validity. The psychometric properties of the subtle scales were much lower suggesting the need for further research and evaluation on their reliability and validity.
