Schilling, Robert F.; And Others
Social Work, v37 n4 p353-58 Jul 1992
Interviewed 148 drug users in urban soup kitchen. Focused on subjects' risk-taking and risk-reduction behavior related to injection drug use, perceived changes in risk behavior, perceived risk for contracting Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS), and socioeconomic and attitudinal correlates of injecting and sharing needles. Findings underscore need for community-based AIDS prevention strategies to intervene with high-risk populations. (Author/NB)
