Drug Abuse (DAST) Assessment Help

Generally, when most people talk about substance abuse, they are referring to the use of illegal drugs.

Take this quick Drug Abuse Self Test (DAST) to learn more about the patterns of drug abuse and help you determine whether or not you may have a drug abuse problem.These questions are used by the Vanderbilt University Addiction Center.
