What is Screening?

Answering a few short questions about alcohol or other drug use, and recent emotions or mood, provides a quick and easy way to determine how substance use or mental health concerns may be affecting your health and other areas of your life. Alcohol and other drug use may increase a person’s risk for a number of common health problems, such as high blood pressure, heart disease, dementia, depression, cancer, and others. Substance use and mental health conditions also affect a person’s relationships, family life, school, and work.

Screening is anonymous and confidential. Identifying these issues early can help you get the support you need to take charge of your health.
