Abstract

Three alcohol-dependent homosexual men with suicidal ideation and behavior consciously attempted to contract the acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) as a means of committing suicide. The authors briefly examine the interrelationship among alcoholism and substance abuse, homosexuality, suicidal behavior, and AIDS; implications for the substance abuse treatment setting are noted. Early diagnosis and treatment of depression and substance abuse in homosexual men or parenteral drug abusers may prevent the spread of AIDS and reduce hidden suicidal potential.
