First of all, Social Security Disability has no interest in your sex life. So no need to go there. They are interested in how your limitations affect your ability to work.

Drugs and alcohol are a different matter.

If you have alcohol problems or use street drugs, then the Social Security Judge will deny your case.

It used to be that you could be found disabled based on alcoholism or drug addiction.

Social Security changed this approach years ago.

You can still be found disabled based on the consequences of drug or alcohol use.

For instance, serious liver damage or dementia.

If you have drug or alcohol problems and are seeking Social Security Disability you must get treatment. This can be from a facility, counselor, or through Alcoholics Anonymous.
