The Audit-C is a screening questionnaire developed by the World Health Organization. This test is unique in that it has been validated in six countries and has been used internationally. Like the CAGE, a high score suggests that you should look deeper into your substance use.

The AUDIT-C (Alcohol-Use Disorders Identification Test – Consumption) is scored on a scale of 0 to 12 (a score of 0 reflects no alcohol use). A score of 3 or more in older adults is considered positive and suggests the need for further evaluation. Please contact a FADAP peer to discuss next-step options.
