This manual is written to help primary health care workers - physicians, nurses, community health workers, and others - to deal with persons whose alcohol consumption has become hazardous or harmful to their health.
The AUDIT was developed as a simple method of screening for excessive drinking and to assist in brief assessment. It can help identify excessive drinking as the cause of the presenting illness. It provides a framework for intervention to help risky drinkers reduce or cease alcohol consumption and thereby avoid the harmful consequences of their drinking. The AUDIT also helps to identify alcohol dependence and some specific consequences of harmful drinking.
This manual was produced alongside AUDIT to aid primary health care workers in administering brief interventions to persons whose alcohol consumption has become hazardous or harmful to their health.
