Abstract:Substance use disorders are highly comorbid with and contribute to the increased prevalence of neurocognitive dysfunction observed in HIV infection. Despite their adverse impact on everyday functioning, there are currently no compensatory-based neurorehabilitation interventions validated for use among HIV+ substance users (HIV/SUD). This study examined the effectiveness of goal management training (GMT) alone or GMT as part of a metacognitive training among HIV/SUD individuals with executive dysfunction.
