Cocaine Addiction Self-Assessment Quiz

If you use cocaine regularly, you might wonder, “Am I addicted to cocaine?” This self-assessment quiz can help you answer this question and evaluate your cocaine use objectively. Although it cannot substitute for a clinical diagnosis of a substance use disorder, it can encourage you to seek effective treatment for cocaine addiction if necessary. To discuss the results of this assessment in depth, talk with your physician or call The Recovery Village to speak with a representative confidentially about your drug use and find treatment options in your area.

Am I Addicted to Cocaine?

Each question in this self-guided assessment is derived from criteria in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, the standard guide for diagnosing substance use disorders and mental illnesses. The quiz contains “yes” or “no” questions pertaining to your cocaine use in the past 12 months. Please note, these questions do not include alcohol use (take a quiz for alcoholism, instead).

Please answer “yes” or “no” based on your cocaine use only. In the past 12 months, have you:

Taken cocaine in larger amounts or over longer periods of time than you intended?
Tried, and failed, to cut down or control your cocaine use?
Spent a significant amount of time obtaining cocaine, using it or recovering from its effects?
Felt overwhelming cravings for cocaine?
Failed to fulfill major role obligations at work, school or home because of your cocaine use?
Faced legal issues (possession charges, arrest, incarceration, etc.) because of your cocaine use?
Continued to use cocaine despite it causing recurring conflicts with your friends, family members or coworkers?
Stopped (or significantly withdrawn from) participating in social, occupational or recreational activities that you once enjoyed because of your cocaine use?
Chosen to use cocaine even when it caused bodily injury?
Continued to use cocaine despite it worsening the symptoms of a mental illness you face?
Developed a tolerance to cocaine (meaning you needed to take more cocaine each time you used it to feel the same effects)?
Experienced cocaine withdrawal symptoms, or taken the drug to avoid withdrawal symptoms?
Taken cocaine in larger amounts or over longer periods of time than you intended?
