Psychometrics of the Drinker Inventory of Consequences (DrInC). Academic Article uri icon


  • The Drinker Inventory of Consequences (DrInC) was developed for Project MATCH to assess the consequences of drinking in five domains. The present study, using baseline data from the 1382 participants involved in the COMBINE Study, analyzed the psychometrics of the 50-item DrInC and its shorter form, the 15-item SIP. Findings indicate the DrInC is reliable, valid, and clinically useful and that DrInC subscales are internally consistent and non-redundant. In an examination of the shorter version of the DrInC, findings suggest that the SIP is suitable when assessing the overall level of drinking-related consequences.
