FIVE QUESTIONS

If you answer yes to one or more of these questions, we suggest you contact a human relations officer or a social worker at your local CLSC point of service (clinic) to further discuss your alcohol and/or drug use. You may also contact us at 819-964-2592.

1. Have you ever tried to cut down on your drinking or drugging*?

2. Has your drinking or drugging ever bothered people around you*? Your family, your friends, your co-workers, etc.

3. Have you ever felt that you drink or drug too much*?

4. After a night of heavy drinking or drugging, do you have a physical reaction, i.e. trembling of the hands, craving to consume immediately after waking*?

5. Have you ever got into trouble while you were intoxicated? Fighting, police intervention, etc.

 

*Note: questions 1 to 4 are extracted from the Nunavik DDIT questionnaire on alcohol and drug. It was originally translated by the NRBHSS from TREMBLAY, Joël and Nadine BLANCHETTE-MARTIN (2009).
