Winter 1994


Case management is being applied to increasingly diverse client populations. This article describes the application of a field-based, service-broker model of case management with a population of injection drug users and crack cocaine users within the context of an AIDS risk-reduction program. The major problem encountered involved client engagement. The feasibility of implementing an effective case management program with active users of injection drugs and crack is questionable so long as involvement with such drugs is cast primarily as a criminal justice problem.
