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.

The AUI deals primarily with alcohol use. However, the AUI does give some indication of the subject's reported use and perceptions of the following drugs: caffeine, nicotine, marijuana/hashish, tranquilizers, barbiturates, amphetamines, cocaine, opiates, and hallucinogens.

The AUI test can be used by psychologists, social workers, professional counselors, chemical dependency counselors, 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-IVĀ® classifications
