The Impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences on Attachment and Substance Abuse in Sexual and Gender Minority Emerging Adults

Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) have been linked to a number of health disparities including deficits in regulating emotions, sensitivity to stress, and substance use. Sexual and gender minorities (SGM) experience high rates of psychological distress and substance use and report higher rates of ACEs compared to their heterosexual peers. The current study found that there was significant relationship between ACEs and cocaine, prescription opioids, amphetamines, solvents/inhalants, Amyl nitrate, and MDMA when explained through Secure attachment for SGM emerging adults.
