In light of the growing evidence of altered decision-making in addiction we assessed decision-making styles in drug-dependent individuals using the Melbourne Decision-Making Questionnaire (MDMQ). Consistent with the literature on laboratory tests of decision-making, we found that stimulant users reported less competent and more maladaptive decision-making styles compared with controls.
