Alcoholic Drinking Self Assessment

alcoholic drinking self assessmentGet to know your thoughts, feelings and behavior toward alcohol

Denial can be a powerful barrier in seeking treatment for alcohol abuse. Admitting there is a problem is one of the most difficult confessions to make, but it is the first step in seeking help. Alcoholism destroys lives and relationships and should therefore be taken seriously. Taking an objective look at alcohol habits may be the only way to admit there is a problem. The Sovereign Health Group has developed an assessment tool to help people recognize alcohol abuse and whether or not they should seek help.

Taking this test can be a great first step on the road to recovery. Treatment cannot begin unless a person recognizes his or her own symptoms. Objective assessments can help determine whether a person needs to seek medical attention or rehabilitation. Seeking treatment not only empowers a person to live a sober lifestyle, but it also could uncover other psychological disorders that are co-occurring with the substance abuse disorder. Upon entering treatment, individuals become aware of any underlying conditions, such as depression or bipolar disorder, which may have been masked by the alcohol addiction. Research shows that addiction can lead to psychological disorders and vice versa.

To learn whether you have a problem with alcohol or other substances, how severe your condition is and to find treatment that targets your individual needs, complete this assessment. Sovereign Health provides treatment programs, informative blogs and other supportive resources to help individuals overcome alcohol addiction. Do not hesitate to reach out for help, as a serious drinking problem cannot and should not be battled alone.
