A questionnaire about knowledge, attitudes, and behavior concerning AIDS, answered anonymously by 79% of the clinical staff and 67% of the enrolled patients at a methodone maintenance treatment program (MMTP) in New York City revealed that a majority of the staff and patients believe that a voluntary human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) screening program should be offered to all patients and that at least one third of patients are willing to comply voluntarily with screening for and counseling about HIV. Patients enrolled in MMTP clinics reported statistically significant reductions in the number of sex partners and in personal needle sharing during the past year. (KIE abstract)
