If you are someone who mixes drugs and sex and you are looking for some support, help is at hand.
A M3THOD service is a FREE, confidential service led by trained and non-judgemental peers. You can access this service in person, or virtually via video call. Appointments are run by people who have personal lived experiences around using drugs like crystal and G in combination with sex. The consultation will usually go for about 30-45 minutes. The peer will lead you through a structured chat to work out how best they can help. Peers are trained, and everything is strictly confidential.
If you PnP, the peer chat can help you:
Learn how to party and play safer
Assess your relationship with party and play
Learn strategies to manage your use
Find out what services are available to you and how you can access them
