Am I Addicted?

The only person capable of answering this truly is YOU!

The first and the most difficult step in recovery is admitting to yourself that you are having a problem with drug or alcohol. One of the biggest road blocks in this admission may be deep feelings of shame and guilt. It is important to understand that addiction is a disease which can be treated under proper medical guidance and therapy. If you have doubts about whether or not you’re an addict, take a few moments to read the questions below and answer them as honestly as you can.

1. Have you used drugs other than those required for medicinal reasons?

Yes No

2. Do you drink or use when you are alone?

Yes No

3. Have you used prescription drugs at higher doses than recommended or needed to obtain a new prescription before the due date?

Yes No

4. Do you regularly use a drug when you wake up or when you go to bed?

Yes No

5. Has your performance at school or work suffered because of drinking or using?

Yes No

6. Do you put the purchase of drugs ahead of your financial responsibilities?

Yes No

7. Can you stop your alcohol consumption or drug usage?

Yes No

8. Do you have blackouts as a result of usage?

Yes No

9. Have you ever lied about what or how much you use?

Yes No

10. Is drinking or using causing trouble in your family?

Yes No

11. Do you make promises to yourself or others about your drinking or using?

Yes No

12. Have you engaged in illegal activities in order to obtain drugs?

Yes No

13. Have you ever experienced withdrawal symptoms (felt sick) when you stopped taking drugs?

Yes No

14. Do you ever question your own sanity?

Yes No

15. Have you ever felt defensive, guilty or ashamed about your using?

Yes No

16. Have you ever used drugs because of emotional pain or stress?

Yes No

17. Have you ever overdosed on any drugs?

Yes No

18. Has drinking or using affected your health?

Yes No

19. Do you think that you have a problem?

Yes No

The actual number of “yes” responses is not as important as how you feel when you read these questions, and how honestly are you able to answer yourself. You might feel frightened at first when you realize the extent of damage drugs is causing, but this realization is necessary for you to start your journey to recovery. This questionnaire serves as a clinical screening process and allows us to help you better.
