Alcohol Abuse – CAGE

Screening questions for EtOH abuse. If 2 or more of the answers are yes → high index of suspicion for alcohol addiction:
  • Cut back, have you ever tried
  • Angry about someone questioning your drinking
  • Guilty about drinking
  • Eye opener – need to drink in the morning to steady yourself (DT symptoms, tremor, extreme sign)
