Abstract

Objective: The aim of this study was to create a short, reliable and validquestionnaire for the evaluation of amphetamine withdrawal, which we shallcall the Amphetamine Withdrawal Questionnaire (AWQ). Method: Items of the AWQ included in this study were based on the fourth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual for Mental Disorders (DSM-IV) and a comprehensive review. A field trial for assessing the reliability,validity and factor structure was conducted in outpatients and inpatients with amphetamine withdrawal. Results: Thirty and 102 patients' data were included in the reliability-validity tests and the factor study, respectively. Due to the very low mean score of insomnia item, this item was excluded from subsequent analyses. TheAWQ internal consistency was satisfactory with a Cronbach's alpha of 0.77. For test-retest reliability, a Spearman rank order correlation coefficientof the AWQ total score was 0.79. The AWQ total score for criterion validity was moderately correlated with the other two accepted measures. Principalcomponent analysis, eigenvalue-one test and a varimax rotation performed to elicit the factors of AWQ yielded a three-factor model of AWQ: namely hyperarousal, reversed vegetative and anxiety factors. Conclusions: The AWQ is a short, reliable and valid measure for assessing amphetamine withdrawal symptoms. Further studies with a larger number of patients should be conducted to confirm the results of this factor analysis.
