There are several self-assessment tools you can find online to give you an idea about how alcohol and other substances impact your life. University Health and Counseling Services provide access to three fully anonymous self-assessments:
In partnership, the NCAA Division III and the NASPA Small Colleges and Universities Division developed 360 Proof. 360 Proof is a Personalized Feedback Index (PFI) designed to provide students with information about their alcohol use. The PFI takes 10-15 minutes to complete the questions and about 5-10 minutes for the student to read their personalized feedback.
Feel free to take a copy of the feedback with you once you are finished. Your feedback will also include a list of contacts and resources in case you wish to discuss any issues raised by your results. Participation in this program is voluntary and personal data is not identifiable. You may choose not to answer any question, or to discontinue your participation at any time.
The ADAMHS Board of Cuyahoga County offers FREE and anonymous online screenings that feature Video Doctor (for depression and alcohol screenings), an online tool that simulates a conversation with a doctor and guides a person through a series of questions about his/her emotional well-being and readiness to seek help. Video Doctor launches after a person completes an online screening and scores positive for having symptoms of depression or alcohol abuse.
These screenings are anonymous and are not intended to be a diagnosis. The screening tools can help you identify signs that you or someone you know might have a mental health and/or addiction issue. The results only indicate that you may benefit from a professional consultation and services.
The eCHECKUP TO GO program is a personalized, evidence-based, online prevention intervention for marijuana developed by counselors and psychologists at San Diego State University.
Drawing on motivational interviewing (Miller & Rollnick, 2002) and social norms theory (Perkins & Berkowitz, 1986), these programs are designed to motivate individuals to reduce or eliminate alcohol and/or marijuana use based upon personalized information and risk factors. The program is designed and updated with the most current and reliable research available. eCHECKUP TO GO is currently being used at more than 550 universities and colleges across 49 states and in Canada, Australia and Ireland.
