Integrated care for gay and bisexual men with HIV, age 50+, who use meth.
The impact of meth on physical and mental health can be devastating. Stonewall Medical Center in Cathedral City houses the I-Care Program—an integrated, collaborative care program for gay and bisexual men age 50+ who are living with HIV/AIDS and who are struggling with meth use.
