Screening Tool: Substance Abuse (in Adolescents)
This survey is designed to provide a quick assessment of whether you show signs and symptoms of substance or alcohol abuse. However, no test is 100% accurate. No matter what your score is, you should seek help if you have any concerns about yourself or your loved ones.
The questionnaire used here is the 6-item CRAFFT, developed by Dr. John Knight of the Center for Adolescent Substance Abuse Research at Children's Hospital, Boston, USA.
