Quick screening tests to identify alcohol abuse

 

Michigan Alcohol Screening Test for Older Adults

 

The Michigan Alcohol Screening Test (MAST) is one of the oldest and most accurate screening tests for the detection of alcohol abuse and dependence. However, its 22-question length can make it prohibitive to administer. Researchers at the University of Michigan developed a short version of the screening test to use for older adults, known as the short MAST-G. This ten-question test is available here:
