Sexual Side-Effects of Substance Use

  • Alcohol/drug use (by perpetrator, victim or both) is heavily implicated in cases of date rape and sexual assault among teens and college students.

  • Adolescents (ages 15 and older) who consume alcohol are seven times more likely to have sexual intercourse and twice as likely to have four or more sexual partners than non-drinking peers.

    Research shows they are also more likely to have unprotected sex, risking sexually-transmitted diseases and pregnancy.
