Study Completion Date: October 2005
Primary Completion Date: October 2005 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:

The proposed trial is intended to test the effectiveness of a proven, manual driven, five-session safer sexual skills building group (SSB) intervention (Schilling et al., 1991; El Bassel and Schilling, 1992) for female patients in MMTP or in drug-free outpatient treatment. The effects of SSB will be compared to a standard group HIV education session (HE).

This study uses a 2-group, randomized, parallel-group design to compare a five-session safer sexual skills building group to a single 60-min HIV education session (control condition). The control condition is designed to standardize and simulate the usual care at community clinics.
