Alcohol Reality Check

An online screening test developed by the Centre for Addictions Research at the University of Victoria to help people understand if their drinking is putting them at risk of harm.

We all know it’s healthier to be a non-drinker than a chronic drinker. But what about drinking habits that lie in between the extremes of abstinence and alcohol dependence? Isn’t there any way alcohol can be part of an enjoyable and healthy life? Absolutely, say health experts, provided you follow a few low-risk drinking guidelines designed to help you avoid immediate and long-term health, safety, and social problems.

This online tool can be used by youth as part of a classroom dialogue or in consultation with a counsellor or another caring adult.
