Is Liver Profile Test Only Way To Find Alcoholism?

My girlfriend is in an ugly custody battle. Her ex-husband is alleging she is an alcoholic. The court has appointed a psychologist to assess them both to determine custodial parent assignment. As a result of the allegation of alcoholism, the psychologist has suggested she take a Liver Profile Test to rule out alcoholism. I am a Med Tech and told her there is NO ONE test that would indicate alcoholism. The profile only indicates liver function and there are MANY factors that would be involved. Do you know something I don t? Please help.
