UNDERSTANDING YOUR SCORE: NACDD SELF-TEST
A "NO" is scored 0, and a "YES" is scored 1. The score total score reflects the total number of questions that were answered “YES”. A score of 2 or more indicates that you may be at greater risk for alcoholism.
If you answered “YES” to between 2 and 8 questions, you should consider arranging a personal meeting with a professional who has experience in the evaluation of alcohol problems. You should consider contacting us or the NCADD affiliate office nearest to you.
If you answered "YES” to more than 8 questions, you may have a serious level of alcohol-related problems requiring immediate attention and possible treatment. You should seek professional guidance. You should consider contacting us or the NCADD affiliate office nearest to you.
DISCLAIMER: these questions incorporate many of the common symptoms of alcoholism, the NCADD Self-Test is intended to be used for educational purposes only and should not be understood to constitute a diagnosis of alcoholism.
ADVICE FOR LOVED ONES AND FAMILY
If you're taking this test to see if a loved one has a problem and you determine they would say “Yes” to any of the above questions, contact us to learn more about their problem and visit an Alanon meeting in your area to see how best to help. Also, visit our page on Treatment to see if you are developing a problem based on their problem. This is important because family members often unintentionally do things that help their loved ones continue drinking. You can actually become addicted to an addicted family member.
