Codeine Addiction Self-Assessment Quiz

This self-guided assessment is created to help you evaluate the level of your Codeine use, but this quiz is not intended to replace a proper, clinical diagnosis of Codeine addiction.

Review your results with your physician or call The Recovery Village to speak with a representative about your Codeine use disorder and the options for treatment programs.

Am I Addicted to Codeine?

This quiz is a self-guided assessment that has been created from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders which is the standard criteria for diagnosing mental health and substance use disorders. This assessment contains “yes” or “no” questions relative to your Codeine use during the last 12 months. If you’re looking for answers about an alcohol use disorder, this quiz does not contain questions about alcohol abuse, you can take this quiz for alcoholism instead. If you're concerned about the prescription drug use of a loved one, take the quiz Is My Loved One Addicted To Prescription Drugs?

Please answer “yes” or “no” based only on your codeine use. In the past 12 months:

Have you used codeine for anything other than medicinal reasons?
Has your frequency of codeine use increased beyond prescribed amounts?
Have you combined codeine with other substances, including alcohol or other prescription drugs?
Have you had cravings or urges to use codeine after not taking it for a while?
Have you engaged in illegal activity for the sole purpose of obtaining codeine?
Have you experienced financial issues due to paying for codeine?
Have you ever put yourself in physical danger by taking codeine (e.g., while operating a vehicle or machinery)?
Have you struggled to reduce your codeine dosage or stop taking the drug?
Have you strained professional and personal relationships due to your codeine use?
Have you worried about running out of codeine and suffering withdrawal symptoms?
Have you felt guilt or shame regarding your codeine use?
Has your codeine use led to experimenting with other opioids or opiates?
