Sexual Addiction Assessment
Sexual addiction, sexual anorexia, love addiction, and relationship addiction are multifaceted issues that require a thorough analysis to make a proper diagnosis. These issues frequently impact a person’s recovery from substance abuse and may require separate treatment.

The sexual addiction questionnaire below is the first step in identifying potential signs and symptoms of sexual-related addiction or issues. If you answer “Yes” to any of these questions, we encourage you contact us at (205) 975-7350.

Treatment Costs & Insurance
How much does drug and alcohol treatment cost?
Costs vary based on treatment length and level of care. Insurance often covers the majority of treatment expenses.

Does UAB ARP accept insurance for drug and alcohol treatment?
Yes. We are in-network for many major insurance companies including BlueCross/BlueShield, Viva Health, and Viva Access. Insurance plans vary greatly on what they cover with regard to substance abuse treatment. During our initial conversation, we will gather your insurance information so that we may provide an out-of-pocket estimate.

The Addiction Recovery Program does not accept Medicaid or Medicare for treatment services.
