The Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT) is a alcohol use assessment measure. It is a screening instrument linked to a clinical decision system that might indicate a brief intervention for heavy drinkers, referral to specialist treatment for those reporting more serious alcohol abuse

It is a simple ten-question test developed by the World Health Organization to determine if a person's alcohol consumption may be harmful. The test was designed to be used internationally, and was validated in a study using patients from six countries.

Questions 1-3 deal with alcohol consumption, 4-6 relate to alcohol dependence and 7-10 consider alcohol related problems. A score of 8 in men or more (7 in women) indicates a strong likelihood of hazardous or harmful alcohol consumption. A score of 13 or more is suggestive of alcohol related harm. [1]
