The Intersections of HIV and Substance Use Disorders

NASW Michigan | Webinar

1 - 4 p.m.

Persons living with HIV face long-term psychological challenges and changes in their quality of life. There is also a close association between substance use disorders and HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases. In people living with HIV, substance use can hasten disease progression, affect adherence to treatment recommendations such as anti-retroviral therapy (HIV medicine), and worsen treatment outcomes and overall quality of life. In 2015, Michigan ranked 14th among the 50 states in the number of HIV diagnoses. Clinicians working with this population need to understand the intersections between HIV and substance use disorders.
