Abstract
Objective: Drug Craving could be defined as a subjective motivational state associated with a strong desire to consume drugs. Craving is a subjective phenomenon; therefore, self-report (subjective) craving measures are usually referenced. Two well-known questionnaires for measurement of drug craving severity are Desire for Drug Questionnaire or DDQ (for instant craving) and Obsessive Compulsive Drug Use Scale or OCDUS [for craving in a period of time (periodic craving), usually one week]. In this study, we evaluated the content-related validity of these questionnaires for Persian-language speaking crystalline-heroin abusers.
