Abstract

Alcohol use is a significant problem in HIV care, and clinical trials of alcohol interventions for people living with HIV infection (PLWH) have produced mixed results. The purpose of this qualitative study was to collect preliminary data on the practical feasibility and acceptability of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) as a treatment for PLWH who are hazardous drinkers. A total of 25 PLWH participated in individual interviews. Four major themes emerged from the thematic analysis: (I) Perceived Appropriateness for PLWH and People who use Alcohol and/or other Substances, (II) General Satisfaction and Dissatisfaction, (III) Positive and Negative Effects on Participants and (IV) Facilitators and Barriers to Implementing ACT Intervention Strategies.
