  1. Evaluation of a cognitive-behavioural intervention for HIV prevention among injecting drug users.

    Article - En anglais


    To evaluate the effectiveness of relapse prevention (RP) and brief intervention (BI) in reducing HIV risk-taking behaviours among injecting drug users (IDU) enrolled in methadone programmes.

    The hypotheses tested were: (1) that a six-session RP programme would be more effective in reducing HIV risk-taking behaviours than a one-session BI and a non-intervention control condition (C), and (2) that BI would be more effective in reducing HIV risk-taking behaviours than C. Design: Clients of methadone programmes were randomly assigned to either RP, BI, or C. Follow-up occurred 6 months after pre-intervention assessment and was conducted by independent research assistants who were not aware of subjects'group allocations.
