Instrument: Substance Use Risk Profile Scale (SURPS) - English

A scale measuring traits linked to reinforcement-specific substance use profiles

The Substance Use Risk Profile Scale (SURPS) is based on a model of personality risk for substance abuse in which four personality dimensions (hopelessness, anxiety sensitivity, impulsivity, and sensation seeking) are associated with specific patterns of substance use. The current series of studies is a preliminary investigation of the psychometric properties of the SURPS in two populations (college students and high school students).
