The study examined the validity of 1848 self-reported uses of drugs determined
within an Addiction Severity Index interview in comparison with urinalysis
results among drug-dependent subjects undergoing treatment in outpatient clinics
(Aquitaine area, southwest France, 1994-2005). Agreement and kappa statistics
were calculated for each substance. Factors associated with agreement were
defined using a multivariate analysis. The conditional kappa coefficients were
excellent for all substances assessed. The accuracy between self-reports and
urinalysis results was influenced by factors that only slightly affected
conditional kappa coefficients. Clients did not underreport their substance use
in naturalistic clinical assessment conditions.
