Substance Use and Retention
NQC: do these trends in Dr. Cunningham’s slides mirror what you have seen at your sites in your
Jocelyn Loren: yes
Sarah Cook-Raymond: For those interested in HRSA's Special Projects of National Significance work on
treating opioid abuse (e.g. heroin and prescription pain medications) with buprenorphine, you can view this
monograph: http://www.hab.hrsa.gov/abouthab/files/hab_spns_buprenorphine_monograph.pdf
Sarah Cook-Raymond: Also, HRSA's Special Projects of National Significance will be conducting a training
series on how you can build capacity to deliver buprenorphine into HIV primary care settings to treat opioid
use. The first Webinar will be Tuesday, August 28 at 1 pm EST on their technical assistance site
(http://www.careacttarget.org/); more will follow in September. There will also be a training guide, a
curriculum to train your staff, and an online forum to post questions and network with other providers doing
this work. All of these materials will be live in time for the August 28 Webinar launch. Any questions can
also be sent to me at: [email protected]
Paul B. Goulet: Are slides going to be available after the presentation is over?

should be right at the top of the page
Paul B. Goulet: Great thanks!!
Jennifer Carmona: How high is too high for a medical appointment? Is there a reason that someone who is
high cannot have a primary care visit?
NQC: (Dr. Cunningham responded live – listen to the recording to hear her response to Jennifer’s question)
Angela: I do not see the 8/28 webinar on the calendar: http://www.careacttarget.org/calendar/%2A
Sarah Cook-Raymond: Hi Angela. It will be posted shortly. We're finalizing all of the slides with grantees
and SPNS staff and working with the TARGET Center representative currently so it should be added on there
any day now.
Angela: Thanks!
Scott Parker: Our FQHC is working towards Patient Centered Medical Home status (PCMH) and I think many
changes related to this designation will address harm reduction i.e. same day appointments, after hours
appointments, etc.
NQC: (Dr. Cunningham responded live – listen to the recording to hear her response to Scott’s question)
Terri Moncus: Great response to that question.
Maurice Evans: (16:35) My problem has been getting people housed but not being able to maintain
housing because of Alcohol & drugs issues. how do i apply harm reduction here?
Jackie Tulsky: It's really not a serial intervention issue, but a parallel issue - work on housing, with psych
and addiction care at the same time seems the way to successful way to have sustained success with this
population (Dr. Cunningham also responded to Maurice’s question – listen to the recording to hear her
response to this question).
Maurice Evans: Thanks Jackie that's helpful!
Bruce Vancil: Shanti has been instructing clients on methods for self-advocacy and getting some positive
feedback from clients.
Angelique: Yolada B Hartford have a travel clinic that works well in the rural areas
Mercedes Chavez/Edwin Cabassa: Can someone comment on the role of the adherence counselor in
working with active drug users who need ART?
Jackie Tulsky: For adherence counselors having them have the tools to do the substance use assessment
and use Motivational Interviewing to do ongoing assessment of the patient's view of the relationship
between addiction and adherence can be helpful. It's clear patients can be very adherent to ART even if
actively using, it seems to be very individualized.
Rafael Abadia: Are their training for medical providers ?
NQC: www.hivguidelines.org is one resource. Drs. Cunningham and Tulsky provided additional information
and resources – listen to the recording to hear their responses to this question.
