Codeine Addiction Self-Assessment Quiz

This self-guided quiz can provide insight into the severity of your codeine use, but the results and information gathered from this assessment cannot replace a clinical, official diagnosis of a substance use disorder. Instead, use the results to identify potential problematic drug misuse and then contact your physician or call The Recovery Village to learn about addiction treatment options.

Am I Addicted to Codeine?

This assessment was created using information from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, the main resource for diagnosing substance use disorders. The “yes” or “no” questions are solely for any drug use in the past 12 months. Alcohol use is not included in this assessment (you can also take a quiz for identifying alcoholism).

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?
