Alcohol and Drug Problems - Check Your Symptoms

Step One
Step Two
Step Three

If you suspect the alcohol or drug problem is related to:

  • Attempted suicide: Go to the topic Suicidal Thoughts or Threats.
  • Poisoning: Go to the topic Poisoning.

Do you think an intoxicated person may need a medical evaluation?

Are you having withdrawal symptoms after attempting to stop using alcohol or drugs?

Does your use of alcohol or drugs affect your behavior?

Do you know or is it possible that you are pregnant?

Do you depend on alcohol or drugs to help you through the day?

Do you ever have blackouts while using alcohol or drugs?

If a visit to a health professional is not needed immediately, see the Home Treatment section for self-care information.
