Drug Abuse (DAST) Assessment

Does my drug use put me at risk for a drug abuse problem?

Generally, when most people talk about substance abuse, they are referring to the use of illegal drugs. However, there are substances that can be abused for their mood-altering effects that are not drugs at all, such as inhalants and solvents, and there are drugs that can be abused that have no mood-altering or intoxication properties, such as anabolic steroids. Take this quick Drug Abuse Self Test (DAST) to learn more about the patterns of drug abuse and help you determine whether or not you may have a drug abuse problem.These questions are used by the Vanderbilt University Addiction Center.

  1. I filled out this assessment for my 17 year old daughter. I believe your assessment is correct. However, she will not talk to her doctor and her doctor won’t talk to me. I know she is getting in too deep but she doesn’t. I have tried to find help but with no success. It seems she needs to be an addict to get help. I am trying to prevent that. I have been to the doctor, the police and to counsellors…still have no direction…any suggestions ???
