Test your addictive tendencies

The SPQ (The Shorter PROMIS Questionnaire) is a 160-question paper that counsellors and researchers can use to measure an individual's level of addictive tendency in each of sixteen distinct behavioural areas.

Jointly developed by PROMIS Clinics and researchers at the University of Kent, the SPQ is recognised and respected as an accurate indicator of addictive tendency.

Interpreting SPQ results

One of the strengths of the SPQ is its ability to indicate addictive illness in several categories simultaneously.
