Item responses on the CAGE are scored 0 or 1, with a higher score an indication of alcohol problem. A total score of 2 or greater is considered clinically significant.

It is particularly popular with primary care givers. CAGE has been translated into several languages.
The following quizzes are offered directly from Al-Anon Family Groups. If someone close to you, such as a family member, friend, coworker, or neighbor, has or has had a drinking problem, Al-Anon may help. To help you decide if Al-Anon could help you, they offer three simple self-assessment quizzes:
The questions in these quizzes are not meant to judge anyone or to assign labels to important people in our lives. The purpose of the questions is simply to help decide whether Al-Anon or Alateen might be able to help.
Come; experience the spirit of Cumberland Heights!
