I am starting to wonder…
Do I Need Addiction Treatment?

Have you ever asked yourself this question? Take the CAGE Test to find out if you should seek help for a substance abuse problem.

The CAGE test is a simple and clinically proven test for identifying if you have an addiction. Take the test below to see if you identify with any of the questions:

  1. Have you ever wanted to Cut down your drug or alcohol use?
  2. Do you feel Annoyed when people criticize your drinking or drug use?
  3. Do you feel Guilty of badly about your drinking or drug use?
  4. Have you used an Eye-opener by using drugs or alcohol first thing in the morning to steady your nerves or to get rid of a hangover or withdrawal symptoms?

If you answered “no” for any of these questions give yourself a score of 0. If you answered “yes”, give yourself a score of 1. While a score of 2 or greater is clinically significant enough for you to seek substance abuse treatment, a score of 1 indicates that you may be struggling with addiction and should seek help immediately.
