Online Alcohol Abuse Quiz – Take It Now.

August 31, 2014|Child & Adolescent

Long holiday weekends and the start of college often are associated with increased alcohol consumption. 

For some, alcohol use will eventually become alcohol abuse or dependence. Some patterns of drinking are known to increase the risk for developing alcohol problems in the future.

Now you can measure your alcohol consumption and compare it to that of others. And, you can determine your risk of developing alcohol abuse or alcohol-related problems.

The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism has an anonymous quiz you can complete to assess your drinking patterns and risk of alcohol problems.
