Accession to the European Union (EU) requires a revision of reporting system(s) and the adaptation of EU compliant measurement tools from the Hungarian side. In this study we try to monitor the Hungarian adaptation process of TDI regarding the European developments in this issue. The second goal of this study was to report on the reliability data of TDI which was assessed in Europe by our team first. 209 users of illicit drugs were sampled. The language adaptation needed a multi-stage translation process. The interrater and test retest reliability of TDI was found to be good. Inconsistency between related questions was not found. The reliability and validity indicators of the TDI in Hungary were acceptable. The protocol is easily applicable (5 minutes) and training is not needed.
