Do You Need Drug Rehab Resources?
How do you know if you or someone you care about needs to access resources to help with a substance use disorder? If you are worried about your abuse of drugs or alcohol or concerned about a friend or family member, consider the following checklist of the eleven criteria of addiction from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.
You likely have a moderate substance use disorder if you have three or more. If you check off six things on this list, your substance use disorder is severe. Any number over three means you should seek helpful resources in your community to help you leave addiction behind.
