Abstract:
Research indicates that nearly half of all persons infected with HIV are substance abusers. Experts have called for chemical dependency treatment professionals to prepare to deal with infected clients in their programs. The purpose of this study was to develop a handbook to help addictions counselors prepare to work with clients diagnosed with HIV spectrum disease. The historical research method was used to develop the handbook. The outline for the handbook and the completed manuscript were each evaluated by a group of counselors working in the field of outpatient addictions treatment. The evaluations indicated that the handbook will be useful for substance abuse counselors. Changes suggested by the evaluators will be made prior to publication. Implications for further research and literature in this area were presented.
