Ativan Addiction Self-Assessment Quiz

This self-guided assessment is created to help you evaluate the level of your Ativan use, but this quiz is not intended to replace a proper, clinical diagnosis of an Ativan addiction. You can use the results of this assessment as a guide to help you determine if your Ativan use is problematic, recognize the signs and symptoms of an Ativan use disorder and seek treatment for Ativan addiction if necessary. Review your results with your physician or call The Recovery Village to speak with a representative about your Ativan use disorder and the options for treatment programs.

Am I Addicted to Ativan?

This quiz is a self-guided assessment that has been created from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders which is the standard criteria for diagnosing mental health and substance use disorders. This assessment contains “yes” or “no” questions relative to your Ativan use during the last 12 months. If you’re looking for answers about an alcohol use disorder, this quiz does not contain questions about alcohol abuse, you can take this quiz for alcoholism instead. If you're concerned about the prescription drug use of a loved one, take the quiz Is My Loved One Addicted To Prescription Drugs?

Based on your Ativan use over the past year, please answer “yes” or “no” to the following questions. In the past 12 months:

Have you experienced intense cravings for Ativan?
Have you taken Ativan for longer periods of time than you anticipated?
Have you needed to use Ativan in order to feel normal?
Have you unsuccessfully tried to reduce your Ativan use?
Do you spend considerable amounts of time trying to obtain Ativan?
Have you continued to use Ativan despite knowing the health, social and legal problems it may cause?
Have you experienced problems at school, work or home?
Has your tolerance to Ativan increased?
Have you dealt with withdrawal symptoms — such as abdominal cramps, increased heartbeat or seizures — after trying to stop using Ativan?
Have you experienced breathing problems, had seizures or fallen into a coma after taking too much Ativan?
Have you stopped engaging in hobbies because of Ativan use?
Have you tried to operate a vehicle after using Ativan?
