This study compares the sociodemographic characteristics and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) risk behaviors of injection drug users who had received drug abuse treatment in the previous 5 years and those who had no received treatment.
The National AIDS Demonstrate Research Program database provide 2001 structured interviews, representing, and Dayton, Ohio.
About 43% of the subjects reported having received treatment in the previous 5 years.
Length of involvement with drug, more frequent injection, more legal problems, and higher levels of HIV risk behaviors were associated with a history of treatment.
Incorporating HIV risk reduction education in drug abuse treatment is an urgent priority.
