Showing Drug Addiction Symptoms? This Test will Reveal All ...
If you Suspect Drug Addiction Symptoms - This Well
This 20-question quiz is an excellent self test for drug addiction. This test specifically focuses on drug use, and not on the use of alcohol. A separate Test For Alcoholism called 'MAST' focuses on alcohol.
As with the Symptoms of Addiction (which is very similar to this) - this should be used as a guide only.
If you're looking for a specific list of drug addiction symptoms - then I suggest looking at ths Signs of Alcoholism and Drug Addiction for a detailed breakdown of the various signs and symptoms.
Your intuition and common sense will often mean you already know whether there is a problem. Remember to always seek professional medical advice before deciding on a course of action.
To take the questionnaire, click the radio button next to the selection which best reflects how each statement applies to you. The questions refer to the past 12 months. Carefully read each statement and decide whether your answer is yes or no. Give the best answer or the answer that is right most of the time.
Note: This test will only be scored correctly if you answer each one of the questions.
Please check one response for each item.
This quiz is scored by allocating 1 point to each 'yes' answer -- except for questions 4 and 5, where 1 point is allocated for each 'no' answer -- and totalling the responses.
So in other words, please score one point if you answered the following:
Your Drug Addiction Symptoms Test Score
1-5 = Low Level
6-10 = Moderate Level
11-15 = Substantial Level
16-20 = Severe Level

But as I've said
before - knowing about it does nothing - you need to be doing something
and taking some sort of action. So I suggest you spend time
reading the Addiction Treatment and
to discover how to successfully overcome a dependency or problem to drugs.
The Drug Abuse Screening Test (DAST) is one of the most widely used screening tests for drug abuse and addiction. Additional information is available in the following reference:
