Admissions of injection drug users to drug abuse treatment following HIV counseling and testing.
The outcomes of counseling and testing programs related to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection and risk of infection among injection drug users (IDUs) are not well known or understood.
A counseling and testing outcome of potential public health importance is attaining admission to drug abuse treatement by those IDUs who are either infected or who at high risk of becoming infected.
The authors investigated factors related to admission to drug abuse treatment among 519 IDUs who received HIV counseling and testing from September 1987 through December 1990 at a men's prison and at community-based testing sites in Worcester, MA.
