Abstract

<p>Young people between the ages of 13 to 24 are at persistent risk for HIV infection in the United States (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC], 2006). Young adulthood is a period characterized by experimentation, including engagement in risky behaviors (e.g., substance use and sexual behavior) (Moore & Parsons, 2000).
