Dependence Check

Change can be difficult to make. This questionnaire is designed to help you get an idea about whether changing, cutting down or quitting your use of a substance may present specific problems for you.

No matter what your result is, change is always possible, but it is often easier with support and ideas about tools and strategies for change.

It is important to remember that this questionnaire can be helpful to assess your current situation, but it is always worth speaking to a health professional for more information if you are concerned about your own or someone else’s situation.
