HIV Meds & Recreational drugs
Dec 23, 2004


I am the Program Manager for the Positive Images program here in Los Angeles County. First let me complement you on your web site, as I have found it very useful over the past four years. This brings me to my question. I am in the middle of reconstructing my web site and I wanted to include a brief fact type information sheet in regards to HIV meds and Recreational drugs. Would you happen to know where I would be able to locate this information that would be in simplified terms for the general public?

Thank you so much & Happy Holidays,
