Know Your Status: PrEP, Condoms and Free HIV Testing
Knowing your HIV status is the first step in taking charge of your sexual health. That’s why HIV and STI testing is at the center of our prevention programs. The newest and one of the most effective HIV prevention strategies is PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis). We also offer clinics designed to help you take PrEP successfully. PrEP is a pill that is taken once a day. As directed by your doctor, with consistent condom usage, PrEP is up to 99 percent effective at preventing HIV.

Injection Drug Use, Treatment and Needle Exchange
The Vivent Health Lifepoint program provides free syringe access services to community members who inject drugs. Through confidential sessions, Lifepoint participants are offered sterile syringes, safe disposal of used syringes and access to other injection supplies to help reduce the risk of HIV, hepatitis C and other health complications. We offer HIV and hepatitis C testing, harm reduction counseling, and referrals to substance use treatment programs for people who want to reduce or eliminate drug use in their life. Through Lifepoint, we also provide opioid overdose prevention education and access to Narcan which reverses the effects of an opioid overdose.
