Unlike some alcohol screening tests, the AUDIT (Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test) has proven to be accurate across all ethnic and gender groups.
This 10-question screening test can help determine whether you might have problems with drinking alcohol. Use the results to decide if you need to see a doctor or other mental health professional to further discuss diagnosis and treatment of alcohol abuse, dependence or addiction.
Instructions: The 10 items below refer to how you have behaved during the past year. For each item, indicate the statement that is most true for you, by checking the appropriate box next to the item.
Some items below ask questions about how many drinks you have had. For the purpose of this screening test, a drink is defined as follows: 1) a single small (8 ounces; 1/2 pint) glass of beer, 2) a single shot/measure of liquor/spirits, 3) a single glass of wine.
