Take Our Alcohol Assessment to Know if it’s Time to Get Help

The World Health Organization created the AUDIT (Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test) quiz questions to determine if alcohol controls your life. It is a 10-question assessment that will ask questions about alcohol consumption, behaviors, and alcohol-related problems. It only takes a few minutes to get through the self-assessment.

The AUDIT is a practical assessment tool for alcohol use and identifying harmful drinking patterns. Those who wonder if they have a drinking problem, but are not ready to call the care team find the self-assessment as their first step towards seeking help.

For each answer, there is a corresponding score. The score will give you one of four possible results with recommended next steps.

You Are Not Alone

Alcohol addiction is a problem for more than 14 million adults in the U.S. If you feel your alcohol use has become challenging to control or creates problems in your life, you are not alone. If you’re concerned that a loved one has a problem with alcohol, we can help. Our alcohol assessment can tell you if it’s time to seek professional help or encourage your loved one to do so.

How the Quiz Can Help

If you’re wondering if you have an addiction, chances are you already know. But having a simple way to verify what you think you know is helpful and could be just the catalyst you or a loved one needs to get help.

For these reasons, researchers developed brief quizzes to screen people for addiction. These quizzes have been adapted to cover multiple substances. 

These quizzes all attempt to answer the same questions: 

  • Has your substance use progressed beyond recreational or experimental use?
  • Do you have an active addiction? 
  • What steps do you need to take to achieve recovery?

Recognize Your Struggle

If you’ve received a positive result on the “Am I an Addict?” quiz, you likely have a substance use disorder. 

Addiction is a chronic and debilitating disorder with a host of negative effects — but you can recover from it. 

Your next step after an addiction quiz is to get a formal diagnosis. You can contact an addiction rehab center to ask for a diagnosis and begin the path to recovery.
