Self Assessment

Are you chemically dependent on drugs or alcohol?

We know it’s a tough question, but if you have a problem, the first step to recovery is admitting it exists. We developed the following questions to help you determine your answer. Take a few minutes and answer them as honestly as you can. This short test may save your life.

  • Are you unhappy with the way your life is going?
  • Do you find yourself preoccupied with the thoughts of drinking or using?
  • Do you question yourself whether or not you have a problem?
  • Has anyone suggested to you that you might have a problem?
  • Do you drink or use alone? If so, how often?
  • If you drink, can you stop after one glass? Can you stop yourself from using?
  • Do you drink or use regardless of the consequences?
  • Has your job or have your relationships been negatively affected?
  • Has your sex drive been negatively affected?
  • Are you in jeopardy of losing your job or family because of use?
  • Do you refuse to go places socially where you cannot use or drink?
  • Do you need to drink or use to have fun or to enhance your social life?
  • Do you ever spend money on drugs or alcohol that should be spent on bills?
  • Do you hide your use or lie about the amount you drink or use?
  • Is it uncomfortable for you in social situations without use?
  • Do you have any legal problems as a result of use?
  • Do you live in fear of loved ones finding out you drink or use?
  • Do you use or drink to cope with feelings of pain, anger, and/or depression?
  • Do you compromise your values or morals for a drink or to use?
  • Do you feel that you are different from others and that no one understands you?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you could have a problem with alcohol or drugs. We can help you determine that with a simple screening.
