This ancillary investigation, part of National Drug Abuse Treatment Clinical Trials Network protocol CTN-0018 ("Reducing HIV/STD Risk Behaviors : A Research Study for Men in Drug Abuse Treatment"), identified predictors of condom use and developed a model of condom use in a sample of men (n=324) enrolled in drug treatment and participating in the protocol. Utilizing a series of logistic regression analyses reported condom use was predicted by possession of condoms, future intention to use condoms, future intention to increase condom use, having a high-risk partner, low Condom Barriers Scale scores, being unmarried and ethnic minority status. A probit path analysis revealed the following model of condom use among men in drug treatment: Taking condoms from clinic stock was the best predictor of condom possession, which in turn was the best predictor or condom use. These study findings identify condom availability in treatment programs as an important risk reduction intervention. Treatment programs can apply these predictors of condom use to better identify treatment individuals at risk for HIV and sexually transmitted infections to better target prevention interventions.
