This library provides an opportunity for staff to efficiently review multiple validated screening tools and identify those that are most appropriate for their settings. Each tool fact sheet includes information including substance(s) covered, audiences, mode of delivery, and evidence base to help HIV service delivery settings integrate substance use screening into their practice.
This library supports professionals in talking to clients about substance use in a respectful, non-judgmental, and validated manner. In doing so, it contributes to the main goal of the Strengthening Systems of Care for People with HIV and Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) project: to ensure that people with HIV and OUD have access to care, treatment, and recovery services that are client-centered and culturally responsive.
Funding for this initiative was made possible by grant no. 1H79TI083022 from SAMHSA.
