Abstract The Cocaine Craving Questionnaire was administered to 205 cocaine addicts. A 6/5 cut-off corresponded to the scale's best performance. Reliability was 0.803. Receiver Operating Characteristic analysis resulted in an area under the curve of 0.7199 +/- 0.0384, and dimensionality resulted in a three-factor solution. the scale is a reliable and valid instrument in identifying craving.
