Intervention to Reduce Injection Drug Use

11:18 EDT 23rd April 2014 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This is a five-year prospective randomized trial comparing two intervention conditions designed to facilitate substance abuse treatment entry and enhance retention in order to reduce the behaviors associated with HIV and HCV risk among injection drug users (IDUs) and to improve client overall functioning.
