This questionnaire concerns information about your potential involvement with drugs, excluding alcohol and tobacco, during the past 12 months.
* Take this simple self-test to evaluate your use of drugs. It is important to note that this self-test is not a diagnosis and DOES NOT replace a face-to-face evaluation with a trained local substance use disorder professional. All information is kept strictly confidential. Your answers may be analyzed statistically for program evaluation and research. About the screen: The Drug Abuse Screen Test (DAST-10) was developed by Harvey A. Skinner, PhD and the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, Toronto, Canada, and copyrighted in 1982. The DAST-10 was designed to provide a brief, self-report instrument for population screening, clinical case finding and treatment evaluation research. It is designed to be used with adult and older youth. The DAST-10 is a 10-item self-report instrument that has been condensed from the 28-item DAST. It may be reproduced for non-commercial use (clinical, research, training purposes) as long as credit is given to author Harvey A. Skinner, Department of Public Health Sciences, University of Toronto.
