London Friend and Adfam are working together to provide information and support for partners, families and friends of people that engage in chemsex. London Friend is a charity that works to promote the health and well-being of LGBT people and Adfam is a national charity that works to improve support for families and friends of people affected by drugs and alcohol.
Chemsex is sexual activity between gay and bisexual men under the influence of specific drugs, usually methamphetamine, mephedrone and GHB/GBL to enhance and stimulate sex. It often takes place with multiple sexual partners and sessions of long duration, sometimes over several days. Those that engage in chemsex often report condomless sex and other risky behaviours.
We are running this survey to establish an evidence base and to understand the concerns of partners, families and friends of someone engaging in chemsex, how well they understand the issue, experiences of support and what support they would like access should it be made available.
This survey is for anyone who has a loved one that engages in chemsex.
It will take around 5 minutes to complete.
All responses will be kept strictly confidential.
The survey is open until Monday 14th May.
