Treatment for HIV-Infected Alcohol and Other Drug Abusers

Treatment Improvement Protocol (TIP) Series, No. 15

.

Rockville (MD): Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (US); .
Report No.: (SMA) 95-3038

This TIP Treatment for HIV-Infected Alcohol and Drug Abusers presents guidelines for creating a comprehensive, integrated system of care for HIV-infected AOD abusers. The guidelines identify a spectrum of core services and treatment approaches that ideally should be available to this population regardless of the setting in which care is provided. Prevention and treatment of AOD abuse and HIV disease require a multidisciplinary approach that relies on the strengths of a variety of providers and treatment settings. For service providers who may not be familiar with the treatment system, the TIP provides an overview of AOD treatment settings. An extensive chapter is included, primarily for physicians, nurses, and other medical care providers, on the scope of medical care needed by HIV-infected persons. Another chapter describes the mental health and other counseling needs of HIV-infected substance abusers and provides guidelines for meeting the needs effectively. A chapter on social service needs addresses issues of housing, family support, and outreach services. The TIP describes linkages and collaborations that AOD programs must form with community service providers to provide an array of services. Finally a separate chapter addresses key legal issues, such as confidentiality, encountered in providing services to HIV-infected persons.
