Does My Child Need Help?

Parents are often unsure about whether their child needs help for a drug and alcohol issue.

One indication of substance use disorder is your teenager’s behaviors. Parents often see troubling behaviors like being secretive, sneaking out, changing friends. They wonder if your child needs help with alcohol or other drugs, or if these are “just normal teen problems.”

Take this test to see if your child might benefit from ASAP treatment programs.  Please complete all questions, or answer no to any questions that are not applicable.
