“To Reach Unrestricted Services for Transgender Women”
Florida has the fifth largest transgender population in the United States. Transgender women, particularly those of color, in the southern part of Florida are a marginalized population who are impacted by co-morbidities of substance abuse and HIV in their communities. The overall objective of the study is to use a vetted adapted brief intervention to stem the development of substance abuse in at-risk transgender women, and thereby increase primary and secondary prevention methods such as routine HIV screening, uptake of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and use of non-occupational post-exposure prophylaxis (nPEP).
Behavioral - Adapted SBIRT for transgender women
Transgender women will be screened for substance use. Those at moderate risk or less will be randomized into the study into either the intervention arm (SBIRT-A) or the control arm (CONTROL-C). Those at higher risk will be ineligible for the study and referred for substance use treatment services
