Drug and Drug Problems Perceptions Questionnaire

Submitted by cbethel on
The 22-item DDPPQ was developed to measure mental health professionals' attitudes to working with drug users. One of its possible uses is to help ascertain the training requirements of staff who work with drug users. It may also be used to evaluate the impact of education programs on staff's attitudes. The 22-items in the DDPPQ include statements such as "I feel I have a working knowledge of drugs and drug related problems," "I feel I know how to counsel drug users over the long term," "I feel I have the right to ask patients/clients questions about their drug use when necessary," and "I feel there is little I can do to help drug users." Respondents rate each statement on a 7-point Likert scale with 1 corresponding to "strongly agree" and 7 to "strongly disagree."
