Drug/Alcohol Use Self Evaluation Tools
Programs that offer simple tests that people who are concerned about their use of alcohol and/or other drugs can take to learn more about their symptoms and ways of coping with them. Individuals being screened generally have an opportunity to see a film and/or hear a talk about the causes, symptoms and treatment of specific substance use disorders; complete a screening questionnaire; and talk about the results with a health care professional. People who test positively are encouraged to seek further evaluation and, potentially, treatment. Most substance use disorder screenings are confidential and available at no cost. Substance use disorder screenings may also be available by telephone or online.
