HIV Rapid Testing in Substance Abuse Treatment Programs: Resources to Support On-Site Rapid Testing

Recent advances in rapid HIV testing technology make HIV testing readily accessible, with fast results. Test results can be obtained onsite in as few as 1 - 20 minutes allowing individuals to receive information about their HIV status right away. This allows them to get the care they need to slow the progression of their disease and to take precautionary measures and medications that help prevent the spread of the HIV virus.  This product details the findings of a recent NIDA study of rapid-testing in drug treatment clinics and provides research results, informational videos, and resources for implementing on-site rapid HIV testing. Product was completed in 2012.
