Xanax Addiction Self-Assessment Quiz

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

Am I Addicted to Xanax?

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 Xanax 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?

Please answer “yes” or “no”. In the past 12 months, have you:

Used Xanax for non-medical purposes?
Intentionally used a higher dose of Xanax than what was prescribed?
Tried, and failed, to reduce or control your Xanax misuse?
Felt an overwhelming urge to misuse Xanax?
Spent a substantial amount of time obtaining Xanax, using it or recovering from its effects?
Felt guilt or remorse about your Xanax misuse?
Been unable to get through the week without Xanax?

Encountered legal issues because of your Xanax misuse?
Suffered to maintain work, social, or familial responsibilities due to your Xanax misuse?
Developed a tolerance to Xanax, meaning you need to take an increased amount of Xanax over a period of time for the desired effects?
