World Health Organisation (WHO) for AUDIT & AUDIT-PC

The full Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test provides 10 alcohol identification questions, and was developed by WHO. AUDIT-PC provides an adapted Primary Care version of the full AUDIT with questions 1, 2, 4, 5 and 10 of the AUDIT asked first. (2008, DH)

Severity of Alcohol Dependence Questionnaire (SADQ)

The SADQ is a 20-item questionnaire designed to measure severity of dependence on alcohol as formulated by Edwards & Gross (1976) and Edwards (1978). There are five subscales with four items in each: Physical Withdrawal, Affective Withdrawal, Withdrawal Relief Drinking, Alcohol Consumption, and Rapidity of Reinstatement. Each item is scored on a 4-point scale, ranging from \\\"Almost Never\\\" to \\\"Nearly Always\\\", resulting in a corresponding score of 0 to 3. Thus the total maximum score possible is 60 and the minimum is 0.
