Substance Abuse Assessment

Are you addicted to alcohol or other substances?

Addiction can be a slippery slope, and it can be difficult to determine whether your use of drugs or alcohol is problematic or actually constitutes addiction. Perhaps your medications were prescribed by a doctor, or you think you don’t have a drinking problem because you only drink socially. Even under these circumstances, it doesn’t mean that drugs and alcohol are not having a detrimental impact on your life and health.

Our self-assessment test can serve as an informational tool to determine if you may be suffering from a substance use disorder. The questions in this test are based on the criteria defined by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Substance Use Disorders (DSM-5). These criteria are used by psychiatrists, psychologists, and other mental health professionals as a way to standardize diagnosis for substance use disorder.

The assessment consists of 11 yes/no questions that can help you determine if your substance use is problematic or indicates probable addiction. For the most accurate assessment, it is important to answer each question honestly.
