Community-Based, Client-Centered Prevention Homes to Address the Rural Opioid Epidemic- Aim 3

Publication date: Feb 13, 2020

The goal of this study is to effectively use a client-centered community-based intervention to engage people who inject drugs (PWIDs) in healthcare that helps reduce risky behaviors and lower infectious disease risks. Participants in the intervention group of this study will undergo a 12-week intensive multilevel harm reduction case-management intervention at three rural Vivent Health offices geared towards reducing human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis C virus (HCV), and overdose risks in PWIDs. Prevention Navigators (PNs) at each office will help coordinate referrals to reduce substance use disorder and increase engagement in the substance use disorder care cascades. PNs will also engage participants in HIV, HCV, and sexually transmitted infections(STIs) care cascades.
