The Addictive Disorders Screen-10 (ADS-10) is a screening tool for predicting potential risk in 10 different addictive disorders: Chemical Dependency (Drug), Chemical Dependency (Alcohol), Compulsive Buying, Compulsive Gambling, Video Games, Food Addictions, Workaholism, Sex Addictions, Internet Social Networks, and Internet Online Sex.

This is not a clinical measure or a diagnostic tool; it is meant to be a screening tool
to be used with an addictive disorder-trained counsellor.

Instructions: Read each question and check the box that most accurately rates your answer for the behaviours that you have been involved in over the last six months.
