  1. Modifying the process of treatment to meet the threat of AIDS.

    Article - En anglais

    Treatment for drug users is unlikely to receive sufficient resources to expand to the level of treatment need.

    Moreover, there is indication that a substantial minority of injection drug users have never initiated needed treatment in spite of long histories of injecting drugs.

    Given the potential for that population to contract and spread AIDS, it is important that we explore street-based treatment alternatives derived from findings regarding the efficacy of outbreach/intervention programs.

    Those programs were found both to reduce drug-taking behaviors of injecting drug users and to prepare those users for clienthood.
