Client Version of the complete HHRP+ manual

This 12-chapter manual is suitable for use by individuals with HIV disease who are addicted to drugs. It was developed for use by patients in treatment for addiction in conjunction with appropriate medical and psychiatric care, and covers all material provided in the HHRP+ group therapy treatment manual for health care providers in a style that is readily understood regardless of level of education. Specifically it utilizes cognitive remediation strategies(e.g., multimodal presentation of material) to facilitate acquisition and retention of new harm reduction skills and to increase motivation for behavior change.
