This webinar provides learning addressing substance abuse treatment in persons living with HIV/AIDS. Clinical management of HIV must account for the “triple diagnosis” of HIV, psychiatric diagnosis, and substance use disorder. This requires integrated treatment services that focus beyond just mitigation of substance use and psychiatric and medical symptoms but also address other health behaviors. Participants will learn about specific treatment modalities for which there is a dearth of literature addressing HIV-infected cohorts providing a discussion of issues around substance use treatment as an HIV prevention tool.

Upon completion of this training, participants will be able to:

Define the differences between HIV, HBV, HCV.

 Identify & Educate Clients about interventions for Pre-Exposure, When Exposure Happens, & Post-Exposure

Examine statistics & other relevant information regarding Co-morbidity of Mental Health & SUD in HIV Individuals.

Review and Implement through case study discussion Substance Use, Mental Health, & HIV: Treatment Approaches.
