Sexual Addiction Screening Test (SAST)

The Sexual Addiction Screening Test (SAST) is a free tool designed to assist in the assessment of sexually compulsive behavior which may indicate the presence of a sex addiction.  This assessment tool was developed by Dr. Patrick Carnes who is a pioneer in the treatment of sexual addiction and the founder of the International Institute for Trauma and Addiction Professionals (IITAP).

 IMPORTANT: This is just a screening which simply means that you may be dealing with a sexual addiction.

How It Works?

At the end of the brief 5 minute assessment you will receive a score out of 20.  If your score is 6 or higher it may suggest the presence of a sexual addiction in your life.  The higher the score the increased probability of behaviors which mirror individuals who identify as having a sexual addiction.
