The Multidimensional Adolescent Assessment Scale is a tool for the assessment of the severity of personal and social problems in adolescence. It is composed of 16 subscales relevant to adolescent functioning, including depression; self-esteem; problems with mother, father, or family; personal stress; problems with friends or school; aggression; suicidal thoughts; feelings of guilt; confused thinking; disturbing thoughts; memory loss; and alcohol or drug use.
Profile analysis, the repeated measures extension of multivariate analysis of variance, was conducted to compare a state-based sample of incarcerated girls with (n=140) and without (n=63) a substance use disorder across multiple subscales of the Multidimensional Adolescent Assessment Scale. Girls with a substance use disorder had higher levels of problem severity. They were more likely to have problems related to alcohol use, drug use, aggression, and cognition.
