Abstract
This study utilized data from a National Institute on Drug Abuse and National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism funded community-based HIV prevention program in the Midwest in 2000. We categorized women who met lifetime criteria for alcohol dependence (using the DIS) and who also had used cocaine (n = 324) into four alcohol typologies based on onset of regular drinking and the length of time to dependence. The Risk Behavior Assessment measured sex behaviors, combined into a risk index, before and after the program. Generalized linear modeling compared decreases over time. Women who began drinking regularly later and became dependent more slowly significantly decreased risky sex behaviors. Tailored prevention protocols may more effectively decrease HIV risk.
