Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to determine whether Motivating Youth to Reduce Infections, Disconnections, and Emotion dysregulation (MY-RIDE) decreases substance use , to determine whether MY-RIDE increases human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) prevention strategies and to evaluate MY-RIDE effects on willingness to take Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP), stress, substance use urge, and use of mental health and substance use services when compared to attention control youth

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: MY-RIDE group Behavioral: MY-RIDE group
MY-RIDE has three main components: 1) One nurse-led face-to-face session; 2) three months of Ecological Momentary Assessments (EMA) with personalized messaging delivered by phone in real-time in response to one's current risk; and 3) access to on-demand healthcare/PrEP navigation and referrals.

Active Comparator: Attention-control group Behavioral: Attention-control group
Participants will receive a one-hour general health promotion session from a nurse and be issued a phone that will deploy the EMA on the same schedule as the intervention arm. They will also receive usual care from the clinics, drop-in center, and shelter recruitment sites. Usual care includes accessing social workers and case managers for immediate housing, food, and clothing needs and assistance in navigating the local Continuum of Care system to access social services.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in substance use [ Time Frame: baseline, 3, 6, and 12 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in condom use [ Time Frame: baseline, 3, 6, and 12 months ]
  2. Change in PrEP uptake as assessed by the self reported tool [ Time Frame: baseline, 3, 6, and 12 months ]
    PrEP uptake is defined as the self initiation of HIV prevention medication

  3. Change in sexually transmitted infections (STIs) [ Time Frame: baseline, 3, 6, and 12 months ]
    This will be assessed by a blood test to detect biomarkers for HIV and Syphilis, and urine test for Gonorrhea and Chlamydia
