Oxycodone Addiction Self-Assessment Quiz

Many Americans are prescribed oxycodone to relieve pain. However, consistently using this prescription opioid can result in a dependence forming. A lot of people who misuse oxycodone are not aware that they have a substance use disorder and in those cases they should seek medical guidance as soon as they become aware of the disorder.

The Recovery Village’s self-guided quiz can provide insight to how severe your oxycodone use is, but the results cannot take the place of an official, clinical diagnosis of a substance use disorder. This assessment is intended to provide information about signs to look for when identifying problematic drug use and how to seek addiction treatment.

Am I Addicted to Oxycodone?

The Recovery Village designed a 12-question assessment based on information in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, which is one of the major sources for identifying substance use disorders. Answer “yes” or “no” to each question based on your drug use in the past 12 months. Alcohol use should not be considered in your responses (The Recovery Village also has a quiz for diagnosing alcoholism).

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

Have you used oxycodone despite not having a doctor’s prescription?
Have you increased your oxycodone use beyond the amount prescribed by your doctor?
Have you felt extreme mood swings since you started taking oxycodone?
Have you experienced any urges to take oxycodone?
Have you engaged in an illegal activity in order to acquire oxycodone?
Have you experienced any withdrawal symptoms, such as extreme fatigue or body aches, after stopping oxycodone use?
Have you ever endangered yourself or others because you took oxycodone before performing a physical act such as operating a vehicle or other machinery?
Have you attempted but failed to stop taking oxycodone or reduce the dosage of the substance as prescribed by your doctor?
Have you suffered from financial instability due to your oxycodone use?
Have you experienced a lower sex drive since you started taking oxycodone?
Have you mixed oxycodone with other substances?
Has your oxycodone use led to taking other opioids or opiates?
