Objective: Motivation is a widely used concept in substance use treatment, which is related to the change during treatment. The Drug Use Disorders Identification Test-Extended (DUDIT-E) is one of the instruments to measure motivation. Among clients who have been screened already for drug-related problems, DUDIT-E maps the frequency of illicit drug use (D), the positive (P) and negative (N) aspects of drug use, and treatment readiness (T). The aim of the present study was to evaluate the psychometric properties of the Turkish DUDIT-E in adult male patients with substance use disorder (SUD) in Turkey.
