This study seeks to gain an in-depth understanding of the patient navigation process as it is practiced in the CTN-0049 (Project HOPE) study with HIV positive substance abusers. Specific aims are to: 1) determine how the navigation process differs for the HIV care and substance abuse treatment systems; and 2) assess patient navigators’ perceptions of contingency management.
