Abstract

A Brazilian-Portuguese translation of the MCMI-III (BP-MCMI-III) was developed to be used in Brazil and with the increasing population of Brazilian immigrants in the United States. This paper reports the results of a study that examined the diagnostic validity of the BP-MCMI-III Alcohol Dependence and Drug Dependence scales for identifying substance-related problems among Brazilians. Findings support the scales’ validity.
