Sexual Addiction Screening Test (SAST)

The Sexual Addiction Screening Test (SAST) was created by Patrick Carnes Ph.D. in order to better diagnose Sexual Addiction and compulsion issues.

The SAST was created together with hospitals, treatment programs, therapists and communities in order to get the best data possible.

Patrick J. Carnes, Ph.D., is the founder of the International Institute for Trauma and Addiction Professionals (IITAP) and one of the leading figures in the awareness of sexual addiction and compulsion.

The SAST is a test comprised of 45 questions with a binary answer of Yes/No in regards to possible sexual compulsion issues.
