Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT)

First for Wellbeing are doing some research in Northamptonshire about the amount of alcohol people consume and the consequences of drinking alcohol.  To participate please complete the online questionnaire.  It should take no longer than 5 minutes. First for Wellbeing truly value the information you provide. Your responses are anonymous so please answer each question honestly.  AUDIT is a ten-question test developed by the World Health Organization.  It determines if a person is at risk of problems caused by increased alcohol consumption.  
 
The UK Chief Medical Officers’ guideline for both men and women is that to keep health risks from alcohol to a low level it is safest not to drink more than 14 units a week on a regular basis.  If you are a resident of Northamptonshire and want to be included in our research, complete the questionnaire.  If at the end, some of the questions have provoked a reaction, First for Wellbeing can support you to reduce your alcohol consumption.
