«I love sex!»
Basic Fact Sheet Detailed Version. Although substance misuse can occur at any age, the teenage and young adult years are particularly critical at-risk periods. Research shows that the majority of adults who meet the criteria for having a substance use disorder started using substances during their teen and young adult years. Teen substance use is also associated with sexual risk behaviors that put young people at risk for HIV, sexually transmitted diseases STDs , and pregnancy. Studies conducted among teens have identified an association between substance use and sexual risk behaviors such as ever having sex, having multiple sex partners, not using a condom, and pregnancy before the age of 15 years of age. Researchers have found that as the frequency of substance use increases, the likelihood of sex and the number of sex partners also increases.
