Answer

The USPSTF recommends the following screening tools:

  • The 10-question Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT)

  • The abbreviated 3-question Audit-Consumption (Audit-C)

  • Single-question screening, such as asking how many times in the past year the patient consumed more than the daily recommended drinking limits
