Since 1985, The Institute for Drug Abuse has conducted research to determine the most effective ways to reduce the risk of HIV/AIDS transmission by drug users and their partners, findings from more than 30 studies reported that community-based outreach is an effective strategy for reaching drug-using populations and providing them with the means for behavioral change. After going over this model, I feel compelled in discussing some of the strategies and sharing them. Although in this model treatment, drug treatment is viewed as important HIV prevention strategy, not all drug users are ready to discontinue drug use. Therefore other prevention strategies are needed for those who continue to use drugs and those who relapse.
