The ASSIST is an eight-item questionnaire and takes approximately 5-10 minutes to complete. The ASSIST helps identify the risks associated with substance use.

The eASSIST provides feedback on any risks and can help you explore options for addressing those risks.

Acknowledging Country

The ASSIST Program team acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the lands and waters of Australia and the Torres Strait. We respect all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people—their customs and their beliefs. We also pay our respects to Elders past and present, with particular acknowledgement to the Kaurna people, the original custodians of the Adelaide Plains and the land on which the University of Adelaide's campuses at North Terrace, Waite, Thebarton and Roseworthy are built.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people should be aware that this website may contain images, voices and names of people who have passed away.
