The following questions ask information about your use of drugs excluding alcohol and tobacco during the past 12 months. Carefully read each question and decide if your answer is "No" or "Yes". Then, fill in the appropriate box beside the question.
When the words "drug abuse" are used, they mean the use of prescribed or over-the-counter in excess of the directions and any non-medical use of drugs. The various classes of drugs may include: cannabis (e.g., marijuana, hash), solvents, tranquilizers (e.g., Valium), barbiturates, cocaine, stimulants (e.g., speed), hallucinogens (e.g., LSD) or narcotics (e.g., heroin). Remember that the questions do not include alcohol or tobacco.
Please answer every question. If you have difficulty with a statement, then choose the response that is mostly right.
Your DAST Score:
DAST-10 scores help people evaluate their drug use. Your DAST score shows whether you should be concerned about your drug use. Higher scores typically reflect more serious concerns.
If you scored in the Moderate, High, or Very High Level (3 or more) you may want to speak to a professional for further screening. Contact the Healthy Lifestyles Guided Self-Change Program.
