Addiction Recovery Scale

Submitted by administrator on
This scale is a 40-item measure that was used in the NIDA Cocaine/Psychotherapy Study to evaluate mediators of outcome in drug counseling. Items are based on the 12-step approach to recovery ("I know that recovery from addiction is a lifelong process," "When I experience craving, I go to a 12- step meeting," "I haven't gotten around to getting a sponsor," "I rely on my higher power to help me stay clean." The internal consistency reliability (Cronbach's alpha) of the total of the 40-items was found to be 0.82 using baseline data from the main clinical trial in the Cocaine/Psychotherapy Study.
