The 2016-2017 Fulbright Award Campaign

Make a donation that could open treatment to hundreds of thousands!

Campaign Goal - $300,000 through December 31, 2017


Is Sexual Addiction a Genetic Disease? What genes are linked to sexual addiction? How do these genes compare to the genes linked to alcoholism and drug addiction? Dr. Patrick Carnes intends to find answers to these questions in his groundbreaking research into the genetics of sexual addiction. Carnes received the prestigious Fulbright - Canada -Palix Foundation Award in Brain Science.

AFAR is helping to support -- 1,000 people will be enrolled as study subjects and sophisticated statistical techniques used to identify genes linked to sexual addiction.

We need your help to support the study. The results could facilitate coverage by insurance companies and reimbursement for treatment! The research may also help reduce stigma and lead to prompt and effective treatment for sexual addiction.
