Beschreibung

Using data from a NIDA-funded study that randomly assigned female substance users to one of three intervention groups, this work stratified crack cocaine using women into groups according to criminal justice history: 1) St. Louis Female Drug Court referred; 2) community recruited with lifetime arrest; and 3) community recruited with no lifetime arrest history. Analyses focused on determining whether women differed on health and behavioral risk factors upon enrollment; whether the enhanced interventions were more effective than the NIDA standard at reducing high-risk drug use and sexual behaviors post-intervention; and whether drug use behaviors changed with greater frequency than sexual risk behaviors, in response to the HIV intervention between baseline, 4 and 12 month follow-up interviews. Findings are presented in detail and, overall, confirm that cocaine using women can change high- risk behaviors, although further efforts to tailor interventions are necessary.
