Abstract

Compulsive foraging behavior associated with use of crack cocaine involves compulsively searching the environment for possibly misplaced pieces of crack. Of 41 crack cocaine addicts evaluated, 33 (80.5%) reported at least some compulsive foraging associated with use of crack; 21 (51.2%) reported such behavior as always associated with crack use. The mean length of time spent in compulsive foraging was 90 minutes. Cocaine-induced foraging may represent a drug-induced model of a type of compulsive behavior.
