The article focuses on several screening tests to aid clinicians and others in identifying patients with alcohol problems. The Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test can detect alcohol problems experienced in the last year. The CAGE screening test can identify alcohol problems over the lifetime. Two positive responses are considered a positive test and indicate further assessment is warranted. In contrast, the T-ACE is a test developed to ascertain drinking in a very specific population--pregnant women.
