Description: 
The Clinical Screening Instrument is meant to be used as an adjunct to the AUDIT. The WHO recommends utilizing this instrument as a follow-up to the AUDIT if a clinician suspects that a patient may not be providing accurate answers to the AUDIT. Its use is also recommended in situations in which it may not be appropriate to administer the AUDIT, such as when a patient is clearly intoxicated.

Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT)

Description: 
The 10-question Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT) was developed by the World Health Organization (WHO) specifically for primary care settings as a screen for detecting at-risk or hazardous drinking. A shorter version of the AUDIT also is used in primary care and consists of the first 3 questions of the AUDIT. Note: The AUDIT manual from WHO suggests adjusting Question 3 based on the size of the standard drink in the country where it will be used. The U.S. standard drink is now 14 grams, therefore many clinicians are now using 4 drinks rather than 6 drinks in Question 3; alternatively, have the patient refer to a diagram showing the standard drink size.

1. How often do you have a drink containing alcohol?

___ never (0 point)

___ less than monthly / monthly (1 point)

___ 2-4 times/month (2 points)

___ 2-3 times/week (3 points)

___ 4 or more times/week (4 points)

2. How many standard drinks containing alcohol do you have on a typical day drinking?

___ 1 or 2 (0 point)

___ 3 or 4 (1 point)

___ 5 or 6 (2 points)

___ 7 or 9 (3 points)

___ 10 or more (4 points)

3. How often do you have six or more drinks on one occasion?
