Product Description: Drug abuse has emerged as the leading factor associated with transmission of HIV, and AIDS is the leading cause of mortality among drug-dependent individuals. Through Effects of Substance Abuse Treatment on AIDS Risk Behaviors, you will discover how drug treatment programs are becoming instrumental in reducing the risks of HIV/AIDS among substance abusers. Needle sharing is a major contributor to contracting HIV/AIDS but, as this book shows you, sexual risk behaviors from sex-trade workers, as well as risky behaviors due to the influence of cocaine and methamphetamines, contribute to the spread of HIV/AIDS. From Effects of Substance Abuse Treatment on AIDS Risk Behaviors, you will discover drug abuse treatment methods that will reduce the number of injection episodes and reduce injection use in higher risk settings, such as shooting galleries, thereby reducing your clients'risk of infection.

Effects of Substance Abuse Treatment on AIDS Risk Behaviors reveals the stark realities regarding substance abusers and HIV risk. Through this compelling book, you will gain new insight into how you can help drug abusers avoid contracting HIV/AIDS by:
  • discussing intervention methods that do not adhere to abstinence-based treatment models, such as reducing a stimulant binge by one day
  • examining the dangerous effects that methadone clinics, who discharge patients for cocaine use, can have on the reduction of risk behaviors among heroine addicts
  • discovering the correlation that exists between the fact that opioid-dependent individuals who have more drug and legal problems are at a higher risk for AIDS risk behaviors

    With Effects of Substance Abuse Treatment on AIDS Risk Behaviors, you will discover how stimulant drug treatment in itself represents a potentially powerful HIV prevention method by allowing the individual to make more thoughtful decisions regarding their sexual behaviors. Through this insightful volume, you will also learn essential information pertaining to different regions of the country, allowing you to effectively tailor your treatment program for your community. For example, in urban areas of the Western United States, the greatest risk of HIV infection is from non-injected stimulants. Effects of Substance Abuse Treatment on AIDS Risk Behaviors will prove to you how drug treatment programs can significantly reduce the spread of HIV/AIDS and make lower infection rates a reality.

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer.

If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.

8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
