Review: Based on data from a multinational World Health Organization collaborative study, the AUDIT (Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test) questionnaire is a simple method of self-assessment and screening for excessive drinking and alcohol use disorders. It provides a framework for intervention to help risky drinkers reduce or cease alcohol consumption. The tool is particularly designed for health care practitioners, but with suitable instructions it can be self-administered or used by non-health professionals. This site is useful for professionals working with multicultural clients as it includes the AUDIT in downloadable PDF format in multiple languages.
