Self Assessment

You might be the only one who really knows

addiction

Do you have a problem?

There are questions people can ask to assess whether or not a person has a drug problem. These do not necessarily indicate that someone is addicted, but answering yes to any of these questions may suggest a developing problem, which could require follow-up with a professional drug treatment specialist. These include:

  • Have you ever ridden in a car driven by someone (including yourself) who had been using alcohol or drugs?
  • Do you ever use alcohol or drugs to relax, to feel better about yourself, or to fit in?
  • Do you ever use alcohol or drugs when you are alone?
  • Do you ever forget things you did while using alcohol or drugs?
  • Do family or friends ever tell you to cut down on your use of alcohol or drugs?
  • Have you ever gotten into trouble while you were using alcohol or drugs?
