Online drug test
The drugs.ie website has launched an interactive drug ‘self-assessment and brief intervention’ resource. The resource will enable individuals over the age of eighteen to complete an online test to identify harmful drug use. On completing the test, the user receives personalised video feedback based on their specific responses, with suggestions on what to do in order to change any risks relating to their drug use.
This interactive resource uses the 'Drug Use Disorders Identification Test' (DUDIT) screening tool. The DUDIT was developed as a parallel instrument to the AUDIT (Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test) for identification of individuals with drug-related problems.
