We studied a population of high-risk drug users concerning their current sexual practices.
They had a pattern of inconsistent or infrequent condom use.
Only 11.5% reported always using condoms ; 38.2% reported never using them ; and 50.3% reported using them sometimes.
Experimental educational programs have demonstrated the feasibility of changing sexual behaviors in illicit drug users by using innovative techniques targeted specifically at them.
The application of sex and marital therapy techniques to changing high-risk behaviors is not widely discussed in the substance abuse literature.
The hypothesis that the application of the techniques ofsex and marital therapy in educational programs for drug users will improve outcomes of HIV prevention should be tested.
