CDC's New Alcohol Screening Tool
CDC's new alcohol screening tool allows adults to anonymously check their drinking & create a personalized change plan.
States and communities can use proven strategies to create social & physical environments that reduce excessive alcohol use & its impact.
Excessive alcohol use was responsible for more than 140,000 deaths in the United States each year during 2015–2019, or more than 380 deaths per day. These estimates are from the CDC’s Alcohol-Related Disease Impact (ARDI) application, using a new methodology. The ARDI application shows estimates of alcohol-attributable deaths and years of potential life lost from 58 conditions by age, sex, and state. See how use of this methodology would affect previous ARDI estimates.
