Alcohol Use Check

This is a screening tool designed to help identify problems with alcohol use. It does not consider all possible problems associated with alcohol use. This tool is not designed to provide a diagnosis. Only a professional can make a diagnosis. 

The effects of alcohol vary according to many factors including age, sex and ethnicity. The feedback results provided use an adjusted question on number of drinks per day appropriate to females and adolescents.

This 10-question questionnaire will check for: hazardous drinking patterns, symptoms of dependence on alcohol, and harm that may have happened due to alcohol use. After you take the questionnaire, you'll get an immediate response telling you where you stand.

We will not share your answers or any information about you with anyone. Please see our privacy policy for more information.

When you are completing the questionnaire, keep in mind what a "drink" is - see chart below.
