Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT) ENG

The AUDIT was developed by the World Health Organization to identify persons whose alcohol consumption has become hazardous or harmful to their health. AUDIT is a 10-item screening questionnaire with 3 questions on the amount and frequency of drinking, 3 questions on alcohol dependence, and 4 on problems caused by alcohol.

The AUDIT relies heavily on the concept of a standard drink. 1 standard drink = 10 grams of pure alcohol.

Examples:

  • 1 middy of normal beer
  • 2 middies of light beer
  • 1 schooner normal beer = 1 1/2 standard drinks
  • 2 cans normal beer = 3 standard drinks
  • 1 glass of wine
  • 1 nip of spirits
  • 1 small glass port or sherry
