CLARO, Heloísa Garcia et al. Cultural adaptation of data collection instruments for alcohol and drugs measurement. SMAD, Rev. Eletrônica Saúde Mental Álcool Drog. (Ed. port.) [online]. 2011, vol.7, n.2, pp.71-77. ISSN 1806-6976.

Alcohol and drugs use measurement provides prevention and treatment actions, and also information for research on this topic. Through a literature review, we found information about the applications of these tools, characteristics of these instruments and challenges in the adaptation process. It was found that appropriate tools have to consider individual needs and the biopsychosocial aspect of drugs use. The adopted references about cultural adaptation should be standardized and the methods used in the process should be made explicit in published studies.
