CAGE Questionnaire 

The CAGE Questionnaire has been extensively validated for use in identifying an alcohol-use disorder. The questions below refer to your feelings and behavior over your whole life. Carefully read each statement and decide whether your answer is Yes or No. The CAGE is scored by allocating 1 point to each Yes answer. A score of 2 or more is considered positive and may indicate an alcohol-use disorder.
