Experimental: Motivational interviewing case management
MICM intervention combines aspects of motivational interviewing along with case management to influence HIV risk and recovery from alcohol and drug problems. Participants assigned to the MICM condition will receive 3 individual sessions within the first 2 weeks of entering the SLH. Thereafter they will have contact with the MICM therapist monthly throughout the duration of their enrollment in the study (12 months).
Behavioral: Motivational interviewing case management
Respondents will receive SLH services as usual along with a list of resources that can be used to address a variety of problems.
