Many patients continue using illicit drugs, sometimes for years. Presenters will provide administrative and medical perspectives in policies promoting retention among inner-city clinic patients with high-rates of medical, psychiatric and social co-morbidities. Case presentations will illustrate applications to dose adjustments, cocaine use, drug injection and illicit benzodiazepine use.
