MacAndrew versus MacAndrew: the relative efficacy of the MAC and the SAP scales for the MMPI in screening male adolescents for substance misuse.

Results indicated the MAC scale is not an efficacious discriminator in settings with a high base rate of substance abusers.
Personality characteristics among adolescent substance-abusers utilizing various MMPI scales
The focus of this study was to determine if certain personality traits could be detected within a population of substance-abusing adolescents. The Depression (d)f Psycho­ pathic Deviant (Pd),

TLDR
The MAC was the best, single variable for classifying offenders' future recidivism risk, indicating that, in addition to evaluating for the presence and severity of alcohol and drug use, screening programs for DWI offenders should carefully evaluate personality factors in making referral and sentencing recommendations.
The relative performance of diverse measures of alcohol abuse and dependence in a community sample.
TLDR
Alternative approaches for various survey purposes are discussed, and measures to be regarded as alternatives to the DIS-III-R are found to perform better in that role in samples limited by age and gender.
