There is an increasing interest in screening instruments to detect intellectual disability (ID) in a quick and accurate way in mental health services as well as in the criminal justice system in order to provide appropriate support for people with undetected needs caused by ID. An instrument that has been proven to be useful in both settings is the Hayes Ability Screening Index (HASI). HASI found adequate to screen for ID in persons with a substance abuse problem.Original HASI cut-off score of 85 is found to be adequate. HASI not distorted by the presence of substance abuse problem or psychiatric disorder.HASI provides a time-efficient and resource-conscious way to detect ID in persons with a substance problem, thus addressing a critical need in mental health settings.
