Protocol Name from Source:

Cocaine Craving Questionnaire-Brief (CCQ-Brief)

Availability:

Publicly available

Description:

The Cocaine Craving Questionnaire-Brief (CCQ-Brief) consists of 10 statements about the respondent’s feelings and thoughts about using cocaine as her or she is completing the questionnaire (i.e., right now). This instrument allows investigators to obtain a reflection of the respondent’s general cocaine craving.

Protocol:

Indicate how much you agree or disagree with each of the following statements by placing a single checkmark (like this: ::) along each line between STRONGLY DISAGREE and STRONGLY AGREE. The closer you place your checkmark to one end or the other indicates the strength of your disagreement or agreement. Please complete every item. We are interested in how you are thinking or feeling right now as you are filling out the questionnaire:

1. I want cocaine so bad I can almost taste it.

STRONGLY AGREE _ :_ :_ :_ :_ :_ :_ : STRONGLY DISAGREE

2. I have an urge for cocaine.

STRONGLY AGREE _ :_ :_ :_ :_ :_ :_ : STRONGLY DISAGREE

3. I am going to use cocaine as soon as possible.

STRONGLY AGREE _ :_ :_ :_ :_ :_ :_ : STRONGLY DISAGREE

4. I think that I could resist using "coke" now.

STRONGLY AGREE _ :_ :_ :_ :_ :_ :_ : STRONGLY DISAGREE

5. I crave "coke" right now.

STRONGLY AGREE _ :_ :_ :_ :_ :_ :_ : STRONGLY DISAGREE

6. All I want to use now is cocaine.

STRONGLY AGREE _ :_ :_ :_ :_ :_ :_ : STRONGLY DISAGREE

7. I have no desire for cocaine right now.

STRONGLY AGREE _ :_ :_ :_ :_ :_ :_ : STRONGLY DISAGREE

8. Using cocaine now would make things seem just perfect.

STRONGLY AGREE _ :_ :_ :_ :_ :_ :_ : STRONGLY DISAGREE

9. I will use cocaine as soon as I get the chance.

STRONGLY AGREE _ :_ :_ :_ :_ :_ :_ : STRONGLY DISAGREE

10. Nothing would be better than using "coke" right now.

STRONGLY AGREE _ :_ :_ :_ :_ :_ :_ : STRONGLY DISAGREE

Scoring Procedure and Interpretation

Each item is scored on a scale ranging from 1 for "Strongly Disagree" to 7 for "Strongly Agree." The scores from items 1-3, 5, 6, and 8-10 are used as the raw scores. Items 4 and 7 should be reverse-scored (raw score = 8 minus reverse-keyed item score) (Heinz et al., 2006). A total score is obtained by averaging all items (Sussner et al., 2006).

Specific Instructions:

The Substance Abuse and Addiction Working Group acknowledges that the following questions may gather sensitive information relating to the use of substances and/or illegal conduct. If the information is released, it might be damaging to an individual’s employability, lead to social stigmatization, or lead to other consequences.

Most researchers assure confidentiality as part of their informed consent process, as required by their institutional review boards. Further assurance of confidentiality may be obtained by applying to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for a Certificate of Confidentiality, which helps researchers protect the privacy of human research participants.

Definition

Instruments used separately to assess the severity of craving for tobacco, alcohol, or illegal drugs, via self-report.

Purpose

The purpose of this measure is to assess the severity of craving for tobacco, alcohol, or illegal drugs by asking the respondent questions about his or her desires, urges, or thoughts about such cravings. The Working Group recommends that investigators incorporate the question in the primary protocol as a core item to obtain general information on a variety of substances. The secondary protocols can then be used to obtain detailed information on a specific substance.

Selection Rationale

The 10-item Cocaine Craving Questionnaire-Brief (CCQ-Brief) is a shorter version of the 45-item CCQ. The CCQ-Brief is a valid and reliable measure of cocaine craving that provides a snapshot of the respondent’s general cocaine craving. Craving is the only component of cocaine withdrawal that is assessed by the CCQ-Brief.
