The risk assessment tool is a simple and validated assessment tool to assist you in identifying if you could benefit from changing your current drinking patterns.
By completing the questions you will be able to assess whether your drinking is putting you at risk of alcohol-related harm. Please try and answer the questions as accurately as possible.
On completion of the questions, personalised generated feedback will be provided. Answering the questions accurately will ensure that the feedback provided is relevant to your personal circumstances. Your answers and feedback are private and confidential, and are not stored by this website upon completion.
The feedback you receive will help you recognise if you need to change your drinking patterns and provide you with further information and support service options to achieve this.
