Abstract
Objective: In this study, it is aimed to evaluate the validity and reliability of the Beliefs About Substance Use Questionnaire (BSU) which was originally developed by Wright (1993). Method: 70 alcohol addicted inpatients, who were admitted to Ankara Dışkapı Yıldırım Beyazıt Education and Research Hospital Clinic, 31 healthy volunteers who had never used alcohol and 33 social drinkers were evaluated. For all groups, BSU and Craving Beliefs Questionnaire (CBQ), for the patient groups,Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI), Clinical Institute Withdrawal Assessment (CIWA), Dysfunctional Attitudes Questionnaire (DAS) and Automatic Thoughts Questionnaire (ATQ) were used as the assessment tools. The correlations and differences between the questionnaires were studied. Results: Mean age of the addicted patients, healthy controls and social drinkers were 42,3± 7,0, 33,5± 9,9 and 33,2± 8,9, respectively. In patient group, mean BSU score was 46,4 ± 21,2. For alcohol addicts, internal reliability of BSU was found to be adequate (Cronbach alfa=0.91) and item-total score correlations were between 0.33 and 0.69. Basic component analysis showed one basic factor. A positive correlation has been found between BSU and CBQ, and ATQ scores. No correlations havebeen found between total and subscale scores of DAS and total scores of CIWA, BAI and BSU. In evaluation of validity, BSU mean scores of alcohol addicts were found to be significantly higher than healthy controls and social drinkers.

Conclusion: Our findings support that Turkish version of BSU is an adequate tool that can be used to evaluate alcohol addicted patients` cognitive believes about alcohol use.

Key words: addiction, beliefs about substance use, cognitive behavioural therapy



Madde Kullanımı ile İlgili İnançlar (MKİO)Anketi Türkçe Uyarlamasının Alkol Bağımlılarında Geçerlilik ve Güvenilirliği

Ozet
Bu çalışmada özgün formu Wrigt (1993) tarafından geliştirilen Madde Kullanımı ile İlgili İnançlar (MKİÖ) ölçeği Türkçe uyarlamasının geçerlilik ve güvenilirliğinin değerlendirilmesi amaçlanmıştır.
Yöntem: Ankara Dışkapı Yıldırım Beyazıt Eğitim ve Araştırma Hastanesi kliniğine yatırılarak tedavi edilen 70 alkol bağımlısı hasta, 31 hiç alkol kullanmayan sağlıklı gönüllü ve 33 sosyal alkol kullanıcısı incelenmiştir. Bütün gruplarda Madde Kullanımı ile İlgili İnançlar Ölçeği (MKİÖ) ve Alkol Kullanma İsteği ile İlgili İnançlar Ölçeği (AKİO), hasta grubunda Beck AnksiyeteÖlçeği (BAÖ), Alkol Çekilme Değerlendirme Skalası (AÇDS), Fonksiyonel Olmayan Tutumlar Ölçeği (FOTÖ) ve Otomatik Düşünce Ölçeği (ODÖ) değerlendirme araçları olarak kullanılmıştır. Ölçekler arasındaki bağıntılar ve farklılıklar incelenmiştir.
Bulgular: Hasta grubunun, sağlıklı kontrol grubunun ve sosyal alkol kullanıcılarının yaş ortalamaları sırasıyla 42,3±7,0, 33,5±9,9 ve 33,2±8,9 idi. Hasta grubunda BSU ortalama puanı 46,4 ± 21,2 idi. Alkol bağımlıları için MKİÖ içtutarlılığı yeterli düzeyde bulundu (Cronbach alfa=0.89) ve madde-toplam puan bağıntıları 0.33 ile 0.69 arasındaydı. Temel eleman analizleri tek bir ana faktörü gösterdi. MKİO, AKİO ve ODÖ arasında pozitif bağıntı bulundu. FOTÖ toplam puanları ya da alt ölçekleri, AÇDS, BAÖ ve MKİÖ toplam puanları arasında bağıntı bulunmadı. Geçerlik incelemesinde MKİÖ ortalama puanları, alkol bağımlılarında sağlıklı kontrol grubuna ve sosyal alkol kullanıcılarına göre anlamlı olarak yüksek bulundu.
Sonuç: Bulgularımız MKİ֒nün Türkçe uyarlamasının alkol bağımlısı hastalarda madde kullanımıyla ilgili inançların değerlendirilmesi için yeterli bir araç olduğunu desteklemektedir.

Anahtar Kelimeler: bağımlılık, madde kullanımı ile ilgili inançlar, bilişsel davranışçı terapi
