Venice : Grant to Fund AIDS Project

August 28, 1986

The Los Angeles Suicide Prevention Center, which sponsors drug detoxification and treatment centers in Venice, Los Angeles and Wilmington, has received a $92,000 grant from the state Office of AIDS, which is part of the Deparment of Health Services.

The funds will be used to design and test a counseling program for former and current intravenous drug-users to help prevent the spread of AIDS.

The program will be aimed at ethnic minorities who use drugs intravenously and who may not use traditional health-care services, officials said.
