Families sometimes feel unsure about how to assess a loved one's problem. The following quizzes are designed to help you think about the possible chemical dependency of a loved one and how it has affected you. These quizzes are not scientific diagnostic tools. Some questions may carry more weight than others. They don't prove whether someone does or doesn't have a problem. You must rely on your discretion and common sense when evaluating the results.
These quizzes are not meant to be "evidence" to present to the chemically dependent person. Do not bring any of these quizzes to the alcoholic or addict as proof or confirmation of addiction. This would be an inappropriate way to address the problem and may cause angry and resentful reactions from the addict.
