"Drugs and aids: reaching for help": a videotape on aids and drug abuse prevention for criminal justice populations.
This article describes the development of a videotape targeted at persons under supervision of the criminal justice system.
The videotape seeks to encourage those who use illicit drugs to enter drug treatment and to motivate those at risk for exposure to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) to alter behaviors that may transmit infection.
The criminal justice system presents an important opportunity to deliver such messages, particularly to a large population of persons briefly detained in a jail or lockup and released without subsequent incarceration.
Evidence suggests that, even in this audience, knowledge of how to present exposure to HIV is widespread, yet those at risk often fail to take appropriate precautions: motivating behavior change demands more than imparting information.
