Does a self-test or assessment constitute a diagnosis?

No, a self-test is not a diagnosis and is not a professional assessment, but rather a starting point for a person who wants to see how bad their drug abuse may be. For an actual diagnosis, an individual should go to a professional clinic and speak with a qualified addiction's counselor or therapist. During this process, an individual can be diagnosed with a substance abuse disorder and referred to the proper form of treatment or rehabilitation for their problem.
