The opioid risk tool (ORT) is a commonly employed measure of risk of aberrant drug related behaviors (ADRB) in patients with chronic pain prescribed opioid therapy. In this study the discriminant predictive validity of the ORT was evaluated in a unique cohort of patients with chronic nonmalignant pain (CNMP) on long-term opioid therapy (LTOT) that displayed no evidence of developing an opioid use disorder (OUD) and a sample of patients with CNMP that developed an OUD after commencing opioid therapy. Results revealed that the original ORT was able to discriminate between patients with and without OUDs (OR=1.624; CI 95%: 1.539-1.715, p
