This chapter details the epidemiology of use and abuse of alcohol, tobacco, and recreational drug use among gay and bisexual men in the United States. The review highlights the history of use and abuse of these drugs over the past quarter century and identifies where there are substantial health disparities regarding use of drugs and where the evidence suggests that gay and bisexual men may not use drugs differently than heterosexual men. The chapter also reviews available programs to address substance abuse issues among gay male communities and areas where the field might best move forward.

Keywords:   alcohol use, alcohol abuse, recreational drug use, recreational drug abuse, HIV risk, tobacco use, gay men, bisexual men, homosexuality, health disparities, public health
