AUDIT-C - Overview

The AUDIT-C is a 3-item alcohol screen that can help identify persons who are hazardous
drinkers or have active alcohol use disorders (including alcohol abuse or dependence).
The AUDIT-C is a modified version of the 10 question AUDIT instrument.

Clinical Utility
The AUDIT-C is a brief alcohol screen that reliably identifies patients who are hazardous
drinkers or have active alcohol use disorders.

Scoring
The AUDIT-C is scored on a scale of 0-12.
Each AUDIT-C question has 5 answer choices. Points allotted are:
a = 0 points, b = 1 point, c = 2 points, d = 3 points, e = 4 points
n In men, a score of 4 or more is considered positive, optimal for identifying hazardous
drinking or active alcohol use disorders.
n In women, a score of 3 or more is considered positive (same as above).
n However, when the points are all from Question #1 alone (#2 & #3 are zero), it can be
assumed that the patient is drinking below recommended limits and it is suggested that the
provider review the patients alcohol intake over the past few months to confirm accuracy.3
n Generally, the higher the score, the more likely it is that the patients drinking is affecting his
or her safety.
