Substance abuse is an epidemic among gay men

Substance abuse is an epidemic among gay men

Substance abuse is an epidemic among gay men. ⁣

While meth is the drug most cited by the media, it’s not the only one causing problems.⁣

Compared to the general population, gay and bisexual men are…⁣

• more likely to use amphetamines ⁣

• more likely to use heroin⁣

• more likely to use crystal meth⁣…

What’s more, substance abuse often leads to risky behaviors like unprotected sex and sharing needles. ⁣

It’s no surprise, then, that substance abuse is the single biggest risk factor for contracting HIV amongst gay men. ⁣

While some may see these statistics as just gay men misbehaving, the issue is more complex than that. ⁣
