Sexual risk [ Time Frame: every three months over the course of a year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Participants in the MET condition will report greater reductions in the number of unprotected anal intercourse acts and in the proportion of days of club drug use than those in the education comparison condition at the end of the intervention period (3 months) and will maintain greater reductions in the number of unprotected anal intercourse acts and the proportion of days of club drug use than those in the education comparison condition at the three follow-up assessments (6, 9, and 12 months).

motivation to change club drug use and unsafe sex over 12 months [ Time Frame: every three months over the course of a year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
The following factors assessed at baseline will predict club drug use and unsafe sex over the 12-month outcome period: baseline severity of club drug use, baseline severity of other substance use, motivation, decisional balance, and self-efficacy.

Risk Reduction Intervention for Vulnerable Young Adult Males
Risk Reduction Intervention for Vulnerable Young Adult Males

The primary aim of this study is to test a brief 4-session risk reduction intervention, based on Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET) to reduce the co-occurrence of club drug use and sexual risk taking behaviors among non-treatment seeking young men who have sex with men (YMSM) in NYC.

This study is a randomized clinical trial. A sample of 300 non-treatment seeking YMSM (ages 18-24) who report risky sex and club drug use in the past 90 days are being enrolled using active and passive community-based recruitment strategies in NYC. After baseline assessment, participants are being randomly assigned to one of two study arms: a Brief Risk Reduction Intervention Condition - a four session MET intervention piloted for feasibility and acceptability among YMSM, designed to increase readiness to change club drug use and unprotected sex; or an Education Comparison Condition - four sessions of facilitated education regarding the effects of club drugs and unprotected sex. Participants undergo follow-up assessments 3, 6, 9, and 12 months after baseline.

Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Prevention
  • Sex
  • Substance Use
  • HIV
Behavioral: HIV prevention intervention randomized control trial
Substance using HIV-negative young MSM who engage in sexual risk are randomized to either a motivational interviewing or an education condition to reduce sexual risk and drug use.
  • Experimental: intervention condition
    Participants randomized to the intervention condition will undergo 4 one-hour sessions of motivational interviewing (MI), during which their sexual risk taking and substance use patterns will be discussed with a trained counselor with the goal of reducing instances of unprotected anal sex and substance use.
    Intervention: Behavioral: HIV prevention intervention randomized control trial
  • Active Comparator: Education condition
    Participants randomized to the education condition will undergo 4 one-hour sessions during which they will view video segments and discuss sexual risk taking and substance use with a health educator, with the goal of reducing instances of unprotected anal sex and substance use by making informed decisions.
