Vicodin Addiction Self-Assessment Quiz

This self-guided assessment is created to help you evaluate the level of your Vicodin use, but this quiz is not intended to replace a proper, clinical diagnosis of Vicodin addiction. You can use the results of this assessment as a guide to help you determine if your Vicodin use is problematic, recognize the signs and symptoms of Vicodin use disorder and seek treatment for Vicodin addiction if necessary. Review your results with your physician or call The Recovery Village to speak with a representative about your Vicodin use disorder and the options for treatment programs.  

Am I Addicted to Vicodin?

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 Vicodin 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 Vicodin use. In the past 12 months:

Have you increased your Vicodin dosage beyond what your doctor prescribed?
Have you felt the urge to use Vicodin despite running out of the substance?
Have you suffered from memory problems or mood changes since you started taking Vicodin?
Has a friend or family member tried talking to you about your Vicodin use?
Have you engaged in an illegal activity in order to acquire Vicodin?
Have you experienced extreme symptoms, such as loss of consciousness or impaired judgement, due to taking a large amount of Vicodin?
Have you ever put yourself or others in danger because you took Vicodin before operating a vehicle or other machinery?
Has your doctor stopped your prescription to Vicodin but you had difficulty no longer taking the drug?
Have you experienced financial strain due to your Vicodin use?
Have your interests or usual routines changed since you began using Vicodin?
Has your Vicodin use led to taking other opioids or opiates?
