This manual is a training guide for the Therapeutic Alliance intervention used in NIDA's National Drug Abuse Treatment Clinical Trials Network (CTN) protocol #0017, "HIV and HCV Risk Reduction Interventions in Drug Detoxification and Treatment Settings." The CTN is a cooperative research group that conducts clinical trials in community based drug treatment programs. Its mission is to join researchers and treatment providers in identifying research-based treatments which are effective in community treatment settings. Protocol CTN-0017 aims to evaluate the effectiveness of two interventions in reducing HIV and HCV risk behavior related to intravenous drug use. This manual is about one of the interventions, the Therapeutic Alliance (TA) intervention, which is designed to increase clients’ entry into outpatient treatment following detox. It includes an overview of the research on and goals of Therapeutic Alliance, and features a detailed session plan for clinicians to use when implementing the TA intervention in their community treatment programs.
