Study Description
Brief Summary:

The purpose of the study is to develop and pilot-test a Recovery Management Intervention (RMI) program for heroin addicts released from compulsory rehabilitation in China.

The project has the following specific aims:

Primary aims:

Aim 1. To engage key stakeholders in the local communities involved in supporting the transition of heroin addicts released from compulsory rehabilitation to the community; Aim 2. To identify potential barriers for participating in MMT in China; Aim 3. To develop and deliver educational/training materials on HIV risks, relapse prevention, and MMT; Aim 4. To adapt and develop the Recovery Management Intervention (RMI) program for heroin addicts released from compulsory rehabilitation in China; Aim 5. To conduct a pilot trial and obtain preliminary outcome data associated with RMI, relative to enhanced standard care.

Secondary aim:

Aim 6. To explore predictors of relapse and HIV/AIDS risk behaviors.

It is hypothesized that the intervention will reduce drug use relapse and the negative consequences associated with relapse, including HIV risk behaviors
