SEXUAL ADDICTION SCREENING TEST
The Sexual Addiction Screening Test (SAST) is designed to assist in the assessment of sexually compulsive behavior which may indicate the presence of sex addiction. Developed in cooperation with hospitals, treatment programs, private therapists, and community groups, the SAST provides a profile of responses which help to discriminate between addictive and non-addictive behavior. Before starting the assessment we need basic information in order to build your profile.
Please indicate gender:
Heterosexual Bi-sexual Homosexual
Please check any of the following which apply:
