Screening for alcohol and/or drug misuse is critical to the prevention of or early intervention in addiction. For those at risk of developing a serious problem with drinking or drugs, the identification of early warning signs can be enough to change negative drinking or drug use habits. For others, these assessments are important first steps toward treatment of and recovery from addiction.
