Alcohol Assessment Tool

The AUDIT questionnaire is designed to help in the self-assessment of alcohol consumption and to identify any implications for the person's health and wellbeing, now and in the future. It consists of 10 questions on alcohol use. The responses to these questions can be scored and the total score prompts feedback to the person and in some cases offers specific advice.

The AUDIT-C is scored on a scale of 0-12 (scores of 0 reflect no alcohol use). In men, a score of 4 or more is considered positive; in women, a score of 3 or more is considered positive. Generally, the higher the AUDIT-C score, the more likely it is that the patient's drinking is affecting his/her health and safety.
