Self-assessment for addiction
- Have you ever felt you needed to cut down on your drinking?
- Have people annoyed you by criticizing your drinking?
- Have you ever felt guilty about drinking?
- Have you ever felt you needed a drink first thing in the morning (Eye-opener) to steady your nerves or to get rid of a hangover?
Two “yes” responses indicate that the possibility of alcoholism should be investigated further. The CAGE questionnaire, among other methods, has been extensively validated for use in identifying alcoholism. CAGE is considered a validated screening technique with high levels of sensitivity and specificity. It has been validated via receiver operating characteristic analysis, establishing its ability to screen for problem drinking behaviors.

Your employer may offer additional benefits through an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) WHAT ARE EMPLOYMENT ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS? Employment Assistance Programs are designed to help employees deal with any personal issues that affect their job performance. While talking to your employer about an addiction problem may seem like putting you’re putting your job on the line, it may actually be the best way to go about keeping your job. Employers offer EAP benefits to employees as a way to maintain worker productivity by decreasing absenteeism and accident rates in the workplace. By helping you and other employees, the employer is in effect reducing the overall costs involved with running a business.
