Do I Have a Drug or Alcohol Addiction? Take this self-assessment quiz

The line between drug or alcohol use and drug or alcohol addiction can oftentimes become blurred. In many cases, an individual engages in casual or social use of a substance and does not realize that the habit has evolved into serious addiction.

If you think you may be struggling with drug or alcohol addiction, take this self-assessment quiz to help gauge whether your drug or alcohol use has become detrimental. At our Boulder, Colorado area rehab center, our 90-day drug and alcohol treatment program is completely dedicated to addiction recovery and obtaining lifelong sobriety.

  1. Has drug or alcohol use created problems in my personal relationships?
  2. Have I found myself neglecting responsibilities (such as financial, family or professional) because of drug or alcohol use?
  3. Do I find myself unable to function normally throughout the day without consuming alcohol or using drugs?
  4. Do I find it difficult to stop at just one drink? Does it seem like one drink always turns into 10?
  5. Do I feel physically ill – such as insomnia, shakiness, nausea, etc. – when I try to abstain from drinking alcohol or using drugs?
  6. Have I ever engaged in illegal activity to obtain drugs or alcohol or broken the law while under the influence of drugs or alcohol?
  7. Have you experienced professional issues as a result of drug or alcohol use (e.g. suspended from work, fired from a position, reprimanded by a supervisor, etc.)?
  8. Have you sworn off drugs or alcohol in the past because of negative consequences only to find yourself engaging in the same type of substance abuse shortly thereafter?
  9. Have I lost interest in activities I used to love and only find “enjoyment” or “completion” when using drugs or alcohol instead?
  10. Do I experience frequent memory blackouts as a result of drinking or drug use?
  11. Do intense drug or alcohol cravings make it difficult to focus on my day-to-day tasks?
  12. Does my alcohol or drug use put myself or others in danger?
  13. Do I feel I like I don’t have control over my life unless I am drinking or using drugs?

If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, you may have a drug or alcohol addiction. Learn more about our Boulder, Colorado drug and alcohol treatment program, or contact our rehab center at 720-577-4422 or to get help today.
