Alcohol addiction is a common struggle that affects people of all ages, races, and genders. Questioning your relationship with alcohol is also common, and it can bring up feelings of shame. At New Directions for Women, we’re committed to helping women understand their relationship with alcohol, identify alcohol as the problem (not the person), and investigate the narratives related to the alcohol use.
If you’re curious about your drinking habits, you’re not alone. Given the culture we live in and the widespread use of alcohol, many people have a hard time understanding the role alcohol plays in their lives. That’s why it’s so important to take steps to reflect on your use of alcohol—without judgment or shame.
When you suspect that you have a problem with alcohol, the first step is to assess yourself honestly. The CAGE Substance Screening Test is a simple tool you can use to get a clearer picture of your drinking.
Remember, quiz results are not the same as a diagnosis and they should be looked at with a professional. If you relate to these questions and are curious about what this means for you, respond with compassion for yourself and take the next steps to get support from our team.
You can take a few minutes to complete the CAGE Substance Screening Test below.
If you answered yes to two or more of these questions, reach out to us today. We’ll help you get the resources you need to live well without depending on alcohol.
If you’re ready to get help for alcohol use, we’re here for you. At New Directions for Women, our treatment program addresses the mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual needs that may contribute to the over-consumption of alcohol with a combination of evidence-based therapies and treatment methods.
Our alcohol recovery program meets you where you are and provides you with the strength and support to change your relationship to the addiction. We don’t view addiction as a disease or a problem that you caused, as those narratives can lead to shame and a continued cycle of substance abuse. Instead, we acknowledge the complex factors that can lead women to misuse substances like alcohol, working by your side to change how alcohol shows up in your life.
