AUDIT

Study hypothesis

The primary hypothesis of this pilot study is that participants who complete the AUDIT assessment measure (Saunders et al, 1993) at the time of study entry, will report lower levels of hazardous drinking (AUDIT score) at follow up, compared to the control group. The secondary hypotheses are that participants who complete the AUDIT assessment measure at study entry, will report lower levels of alcohol consumption, problems and dependence at follow up, compared to the control group. In combination with the specific effects of reactivity to a brief measure, we will also evaluate the more general impact of participating in a study of alcohol consumption.
