This study found a relatively high rate of adherence in homeless/marginally housed IDUs with more than half (63%) reporting perfect (100%) adherence levels. Findings from this study suggest that when evaluating patient readiness for antiretroviral medications, current housing may not need to be the primary concern. Rather, depression may be a more potent indicator of nonadherence than homelessness for HIV-positive IDUs. (Authors)
