Addiction Self-Test

This self-test is not intended to constitute a diagnosis of addiction but as a guide to assess if you are at risk. Insert the substance or behavior in the statements below.

  • Substance(s) often taken in larger amounts or for a longer period than intended.
  • There is a persistent desire or unsuccessful effort to cut down or control substance(s) use.
  • A great deal of time is spent in activities necessary to obtain, use, or recover from substance(s) effects.
  • Craving or a strong desire or urge to use substance(s).
  • Recurrent substance(s) use resulting in a failure to fulfill major role obligations at work, school, or home.
  • Continued substance(s) use despite having persistent or recurrent social or interpersonal problems caused or exacerbated by the effects of substance(s).
  • Important social, occupational, or recreational activities are given up or reduced because of substance(s) use.
  • Recurrent substance(s) use in situations in which it is physically hazardous.
  • Substance(s) use is continued despite knowledge of having a persistent or recurrent physical or psychological problem that is likely to have been caused or exacerbated by substance(s).
  • Tolerance (a need for markedly increased amounts of substance(s) to achieve the desired effect or a markedly diminished effect with continued use of the same amount).
  • Withdrawal (get sick or use substance(s) to relieve or avoid getting sick).

Consider seeing a healthcare professional if you answered ‘yes’ to at least 2 of the statements above (within the span of 12-months).
