The committee's hosts during site visits to cities across the country offered a degree of cooperation, hospitality, and candor in response to the committee's questions that made a deep and lasting impression. The hosts received assurance that no comments or observations would be attributed to specific individuals or organizations and that individual anonymity would be full preserved. Many of those visited indicated that such assurances were not a precondition for their cooperation; nevertheless, these guarantees have been observed in the report, and the committee feels that it is important to uphold them here. Therefore, names of the many individual hosts in whose debt the study remains are not included here. The committee wishes, however, at least to signal the extent of their contributions by expressing its thanks to each of the following organizations for permitting access to their staff and facilities:

AIDS Outreach Project, Portland, Oregon

Allegheny County Mental Health, Mental Retardation, and Drug Abuse Program, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Bank of America, San Francisco, California

Bay Area Treatment Services, Berkeley, California

Beth Israel Medical Center, New York, New York
