Project CHOICES was a Targeted Capacity Expansion Program for Substance Abuse Treatment and HIV/AIDS Services (Short Title: TCE/HIV). The program targeted individuals with a history of incarceration who become infected with HIV or who were at risk of acquiring HIV.

The project goals were to increase access to substance dependence treatment services in the cities of New Haven and Hartford, improve the quality and intensity of drug treatment services by linking clinical care and substance dependence treatment, and enhance drug treatment with concomitant mental health care for persons with multiple diagnoses.
