This fact sheet, published by the Kaiser Family Foundation, summarizes some evidence showing that alcohol and drug use by young people is associated with risky sexual activity.  The findings were from a national survey conducted by the Kaiser Family Foundation and released at a conference, Dangerous Liaisons: Substance Abuse and Sexual Behavior, sponsored by the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse (CASA) at Columbia University.

Information and data about risky sexual behaviors and substance use, sexual initiation, unprotected sex, multiple partners, STDs, unintended pregnancy sexual assault and violence are included.
