Congratulations to the Zach Mannes, Larry Burrell, Erin Ferguson, and Dr. Ennis on their recently published manuscript titled “The prevalence and patterns of substance use by birth cohort among HIV-positive adults in Florida” in the journal of Aging and Mental Health.
This secondary data analysis examined the association between birth cohorts of adults living with HIV and current substance use patterns in this population. Findings demonstrate that the prevalence of crack and injection drugs was significantly greater among the older cohorts, while marijuana use was significantly more prevalent among younger adults. In the article, authors highlight relevant clinical implications of these findings, particularly emphasizing the need for continued monitoring and treatment of substance use behaviors among older adults living with HIV.
