The Michigan Alcoholism Screening Test (MAST) was developed in 1971 and is one of the oldest alcoholism screening tests around. It is the standard for diagnosing alcoholism and has an accuracy rate of 89%. If you are unsure if you have a problem with alcohol, MAST will give you clear answers. With those answers, you can start on your road to recovery and find the help that you need. Simply read each statement carefully, and choose “yes” or “no”, as it applies to you most of the time. After you complete the test, click on “Finish quiz” and you will get your results.
