SRRS:Stimulant Relapse Risk Scale

Introduction of the SRRS

Stimulant Relapse Risk Scale (SRRS) is a self-rating scale developed by Tokyo Metropolitan Institute of Medical Science to predict the risk of stimulant reuse multilaterally in patients with drug dependence.

The SRRS has 35 items and measures the risk of stimulant reuse in 5 dimensions: anxiety and intention to use drug, emotionality problems, compulsivity for drug use, positive expectancies and lack of control over drug, and lack of negative expectancy for drug use. The SRRS includes 5 items to measure insight into mental condition. It takes about 15 minutes to complete the SRRS.

Although it is important to predict stimulant reuse, the risk of stimulant reuse was not indicated only as “craving for drug”. The SRRS is expected to estimate and predict the risk of stimulant reuse multilaterally.
