Alcohol Use Inventory (AUI)

PDF Reports

Product Description

The Alcohol Use Inventory (AUI) provides a basis for describing different ways in which individuals use alcohol, the benefits they derive from such use, the negative consequences associated with its use, and the degree of concern individuals express about the use of alcohol and its consequences. 

How to Use This Test

The AUI test can be used by psychologists, social workers, chemical dependency counsellors and physicians to help:

  • Differentiate drinking styles and develop individual treatment plans
  • Provide an objective assessment of alcohol-related problems
  • Identify treatment-relevant classification of alcohol abusers based on DSM-IV® classifications

Key Features

The AUI test's multidimensional approach can help the substance-abuse professional tailor a treatment plan to a client's specific problems.

The self-report format of the AUI test enables substance-abuse professionals to compare an individual's perceptions about his or her use of alcohol with the interviewer's perceptions and those of family members and others.
