HOW MUCH IS TOO MUCH?
Visitors to this free health-screening website receive personalized feedback, finding out if their alcohol consumption is likely to be within safe limits -- or if it may be harmful to their health now, or in the future. They also find out whether they drink more or less than other people of their age and gender.
AlcoholScreening.org was developed by Join Together, a project of the Boston University School of Public Health. Based on the AUDIT (Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test), a standard in screening instruments, this simple, anonymous test takes only a few minutes and provides confidential results. AlcoholScreening.org was launched in April 2001, and the website delivered its millionth health screening on April 7, 2009.
