Heroin Addiction Self-Assessment Quiz

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

Am I Addicted to Heroin?

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 Heroin 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 are concerned a loved one is taking illicit drugs, take our Is My Loved One Addicted To Illicit Drugs?

Please answer “yes” or “no” based on your heroin use only. In the past 12 months, have you:

Used more heroin than you intended?
Experienced a heroin overdose and needed to be revived with Narcan?
Used several drugs at once, including heroin?
Spent a significant amount of time obtaining heroin, using it or recovering from its effects?
