Conduct CAGE test and refer to specialized addiction treatment services upon a positive result

This proactive approach includes the systematic application of the CAGE test, a validated tool for this purpose.

In the event of a positive result on the CAGE test, immediate referral to specialized addiction treatment services is initiated. This measure is taken with the purpose of addressing any signs of problematic consumption or addiction development early and in a specialized manner.

Regular screening is considered an essential component of clinical care, allowing for the identification of risk situations or problematic consumption patterns that may go unnoticed in conventional evaluations. Early detection is valued as fundamental for intervening in the early stages of the problem, before it worsens and leads to more severe consequences for the patient’s health.
