For the purposes of this screening test, drug abuse refers to:
- The use of prescribed or “over the counter” drugs in excess of the directions, and
- Any non-medical use of drugs
Remember, for the purposes of this screening test, the questions do not refer to alcoholic beverages. The DAST does not include alcohol use. Separate tests called ‘CAGE’ and ‘MAST’ focus on alcohol use.
