Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The public health literature demonstrates disturbingly high HIV risk for persons with a serious mental illness, who are concurrently comorbid for substance abuse. Many HIV positives have not been tested and therefore do not know their status, but for individuals who are triply diagnosed, adherence to HIV treatment results in meaningful reductions in viral loads and CD4 counts. Barriers to treatment compliance are reviewed, low-threshold/low-intensity community-based interventions are discussed, and preliminary evidence is presented for the efficacy of the intervention cascade, defined as an integrated intervention delivered by specially trained nurses who individualize a treatment compliance intervention in real time as an adaptive response to demand characteristics of the individual.
