If you have concerns about your substance use, we encourage you to take our questionnaire. This tool is designed to offer insight into your habits and behaviors, helping you gain a better understanding of your relationship with substances. While the questionnaire can provide a general idea of whether your habits may be a cause for concern, it is important to remember that the journey to recovery is highly individualised. Our team of dedicated professionals is here to assist you in interpreting the results and guiding you towards the most appropriate and effective course of action for your unique needs. Your well-being is our top priority, and we are committed to supporting you every step of the way.
