Experimental: Texting + Psychoeducation
Participants in the individualized Texting for Adherence Building (iTAB) arm will receive daily text messaging reminders for antiretroviral medication adherence. These text messages will be targeted to the specific schedule and needs of the individual. Participants will also receive a one-time psychoeducational intervention reviewing the importance of adherence to anti-HIV medications.
Behavioral: individualized Texting for Adherence Building (iTAB)
Intervention is designed to send automated text messages to HIV+ persons who are current methamphetamine (METH+) users. Text messages are personalized, automated, real-time text messages. The iTAB intervention is designed to improve adherence to ART medications among HIV+/METH+ persons above and beyond an active comparator group.
Active Comparator: Psychoeducation
Participants will receive a one-time psychoeducational intervention reviewing the importance of adherence to anti-HIV medications. They will also receive daily text messages to evaluate mood and methamphetamine use, but these messages will not remind participants about medication adherence.
Participants will also receive daily text messages to evaluate mood and methamphetamine use, but these messages will not remind participants about medication adherence.
- Adherence to Antiretroviral Medication [ Time Frame: Completion of 6-week intervention ]Adherence will be measured using Medication Event Monitoring Systems (MEMS)
