result of alcohol or drug use?
Do you engage in reckless behaviors (such as driving
while intoxicated or having unprotected sex)?

Do you have legal or financial problems as a result of alcohol or drug use?
Have you developed tolerance—meaning it takes more and more of the substance over time to achieve the desired effect?
If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions, you could be abusing or addicted to alcohol and/or drugs such as heroin, cocaine, marijuana, prescription painkillers, stimulants or other drugs.
