  • Description:
    Drug Users Intervention Trial (DUIT) is a small-group, cognitive behavioral, peer education intervention designed to reduce injection and sexual risk behaviors for HIV and HCV infection in young injection drug users. The intervention consists of six 2-hour sessions delivered to groups of 5 to 15 people, by two facilitators, over 3 weeks. The first four sessions teach participants what it means to be a peer educator and provides tools for this role. The first 2 sessions focus on injection-related risk, and the third and fourth sessions focus on sexual risk behavior. The fifth session gives participants an opportunity to practice sharing risk-reduction information in a community setting that is pre-arranged as part of the intervention. The sixth session consists of a group debriefing about the community - based peer education session, a goal-setting activity to encourage further peer education and personal risk reduction, and a graduation ceremony. Session activities include videos, interactive discussions, group exercises, skills building role plays and practice, and activities designed to have participants practice new skills between sessions, with feedback and discussion at the next session. Participants are also offered a “resource table” that includes access to community resources, information, and risk reduction supplies at every session
