Our objectives were to assess the effects of a psychoeducational (PE) program designed to reduce HIV risk behaviors in recovering drug abusers and to evaluate mediating variables associated with risk reduction as described by the AIDS Risk Reduction Model (ARRM).
Consecutive admissions to a Department of Veterans Affairs drug dependence inpatient treatment program (n=152) were randomly assigned to PE or a standart information (INFO) condition.
PE involved a 6-hour small group intervention designed to enhance knowledge and attitudes regarding HIV prevention, improve skills in condom use and needle sterilization, and modify high-risk sex and drug-related behaviors.
