Workshop Description:

Clients with chemical dependencies are often susceptible to severe medical issues.  Since the beginning of the epidemic, drug abuse has been linked with HIV/AIDS.  According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), the link is correlated with increased risk of contracting and transmitting HIV, along with worsening its consequences once becoming infected.  Research shows that drug treatment can both prevent HIV and curtail its transmission.  This workshop will further explore the link between drug use and HIV, while identifying current trends in the epidemic.  Furthermore, this workshop will explore common psychosocial concerns, along with recommendations for assisting clients in managing their primary care.
