AIDS-Related Illness and AIDS Risk in Male Homo/Bisexual Substance Abusers: Case Reports and Clinical Issues
Westermeyer J~~et al
Undertook a case analysis to clarify the issues involved with AIDS & substance abuse in a sample of 18 homosexual & bisexual men (aged 23-51 yrs) in a substance abuse program. Most Ss had abused 3 or more different substances, had used drugs parenterally, had had more than 50 sex partners and/or had received previous substance abuse treatment. Affective disorder, suicide attempt & antisocial personality were frequent. About half of the SS complied with treatment & showed improvement.
