Addiction Quiz

The following questions do not take the place of a professional assessment and are not designed to make a formal diagnosis of an addiction.

However, some of these questions might help you identify potentially harmful behaviors and determine whether you or a loved one has a substance abuse problem or addiction that needs professional treatment. If you answer “yes” to two or more of these questions, you or your loved one could have a problem with alcohol or drugs. Help is available today by calling 1.877.577.3233.
