This project aimed to review the “Real Men Are Safe” intervention developed and evaluated as part of the NIDA Clinical Trials Network to be more culturally relevant to African American and Hispanic men. Phase two of the study involved conducting a pilot feasibility trial of the revised intervention in four community treatment programs affiliated with the CTN in which there was a high percentage of African American or Hispanic clients.
