Self-Assessment on Alcoholism / Alcohol Addiction
Do you show related symptoms?
This self test combines two of the most established tests on alcoholism and is thus quite reliable, even when done over the Internet. One of the tests was developed by the World Health Organization (WHO) to screen for harmful or hazardous drinking patterns, the other one is based on the diagnosis criteria for Alcoholism as defined by W.Feuerlein.
Depending on whether just one or both test results indicate alcohol abuse/addiction, the test result will be accordingly distinct.
Please note: because of the conditions of a test like this and with the following list of questions, this test shouldn't be mistaken a diagnostic test - it can not replace a medical, psychological or therapeutic diagnosis or medical checkups. In suspicious cases it is thereby strongly suggested to consult a doctor or therapist to avoid any risks to your health.
The test involves 32 questions and will take about 10 minutes to complete.
After submitting your answers, your results will be displayed (at no cost at all).
Privacy is considered as important by me as a psychotherapist: your answers will be saved for statistical reasons, but without any personal reference which would allow a conclusion about your identity. To avoid abuse of this questionnaire, your IP address will be recorded.
Instructions and complementary notes
The results will be more accurate if you answer honestly.
Please answer spontaneously, without dithering too long.
- One drink is defined as 12 ounces (0.33l.) of beer, 5 ounces (1/6l.) of wine, or one standard cocktail (1.5 ounces of 80-proof liquor).
- please answer all questions and don't leave any of them unanswered -
a result will only be displayed if you answered the complete questionnaire.
- please pay attention on the wording of the questions and try to answer as exact as possible. But once you understood the question, answer spontaneously and avoid minute-long pondering over the 'correct' answer.
