Harm Reduction and Prevention for Drug Users

Testing

We offer rapid HIV and Hepatitis C testing with same-day results at our office and at various sites around Southwest Virginia.

Harm Reduction Materials and Education

If you or someone you know is using drugs, we can help. We provide bleach and first aid materials for cleaning equipment and treating injection sites to help reduce risks of HIV, Hepatitis C, and other complications. We also have monthly Harm Reduction Skill Building classes at our office and at treatment centers around Southwest Virginia.

Patient Navigation

If you are HIV or Hepatitis C positive we can help you overcome barriers that make it more difficult to link with medical treatment. Through our patient navigation program we’ll work with you one-on-one to link you with the services and resources to help you pursue the medical services you need.

CLEAR “Choose Life! Empowerment, Action, Results”

CLEAR is a one-on-one, five session program in which you can talk with one of us about your life goals and we’ll help you work on the skills you need to achieve them. After the initial five sessions, you have the option of doing extra sessions focused on your specific risks and/or needs.

ALL PROGRAMS AND MATERIALS ARE FREE AND OFFER AN INCENTIVE FOR PARTICIPATION!
