If you’re worried that someone you love may be addicted to an illegal drug, this quiz can help you match behaviors that your loved one may exhibit to common signs of illicit drug addiction. This quiz cannot substitute for an official, clinical diagnosis of a substance use disorder. The results of this assessment can help clarify your loved one’s specific risk of addiction so you can speak with them about treatment options, if necessary.
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 quiz addresses common physical and behavioral signs of addictions to illegal drugs like meth, heroin, cocaine, marijuana, bath salts, and ecstasy.
This quiz doesn’t address the illegal use of prescription drugs or any alcohol use. If you are concerned that your loved one may be addicted to prescription drugs (regardless of whether they hold the prescription), take the “Is My Loved One Addicted to Prescription Drugs?” quiz instead. Or, if you are concerned your loved one may struggle with alcoholism, complete the “Is My Loved One Addicted to Alcohol?” quiz.
