Concerned that you might have a problem with excessive alcohol consumption? Use this brief screening tool to see if you should seek professional help.

You can also try Alcohol e-CheckUpToGo, an interactive web survey that allows college and university students to enter information about their drinking patterns and receive feedback about their use of alcohol. The assessment takes about 6-7 minutes to complete, is self-guided, and requires no face-to-face contact time with a counselor or administrator.
