Abstract

States and communities use many strategies and policies to facilitate the integration of HIV and AIDS services with alcoholism and drug abuse treatment and prevention program. Massachusetts' policy initiatives that promoted collaboration between substance abuse programs and AIDS services are outlined. The review begins with an overview of the HIV epidemic in Massachusetts and reflects on the initial challenges of building system capacity so that HIV and substance abuse services could become more closely integrated. The discussion summarizes specific policy strategies implemented to encourage system development and to develop program and staff skills for working with men and women with HIV/AIDS and at risk of infection. The initiatives included integration of alcoholism and drug abuse treatment programs, expansion of Medicaid reimbursement for substance abuse treatment, training and skills development for counselors, and coordinated service development and advocacy for substance abuse and AIDS/HIV services.
