Gender Differences in the Interrelationships between Sexual Abuse, Risky Sexual Behavior, and Anxiety/Depression in Treatment Efficacy and Drug Use over Time among Individuals with Substance Use Disorders

Investigators will analyze opiate and stimulant users across 3 different treatment modalities from 7 CTN trials focusing on gender differences on the relationship between sexual and physical abuse, anxiety, and depression symptoms; as well as the impact of these factors on SUD treatment efficacy, and HIV risk behaviors.  Investigators will conduct baseline cross-sectional and longitudinal analyses focused on gender differences in history of sexual and physical abuse as they relate to baseline anxiety and depression symptoms, as well as measures of HIV risk behaviors, addiction severity and treatment outcomes; and gender differences in anxiety and depression symptoms as they relate to HIV risk behaviors, addiction severity and treatment outcomes.
