Testing, Treatment, and Counseling

STI/STD Testing

We offer confidential testing and treatment for chlamydia and gonorrhea. Persons who test positive for chlamydia or gonorrhea are offered free treatment. Their sexual partners may also receive counseling, treatment, and testing. Partners should also contact the health department.

STI counseling, testing, and treatment is available to all persons 13 years of age and older. Minors do not need parental or guardian consent for counseling, testing, or treatment. The fee for STI counseling and testing is $22; however, clients will not be turned away if they are unable to pay. Women 30 years of age and over may be charged an additional lab fee. Payment is expected at the time of service.

Please contact our office for more information or to schedule an appointment. STI counseling and testing is by appointment only.

What to Expect

Before counseling and testing, the client and an STI counselor discuss the client's risk factors for getting STIs and what the client can do to reduce their risk in the future. Information on STIs is also provided during the counseling session. Appointments usually last about 30 minutes. Test results are given by telephone or mail. Results are generally available one week after testing.

HIV Screening

We offer FREE HIV screening. The only way to know your HIV status is to get tested. Knowing your status gives you powerful information to keep you and your partner healthy.

The CDC recommends everyone between the ages of 13 and 64 get tested for HIV at least once. People at higher risk should get tested more often. If you’re pregnant, talk to your health care provider about getting tested for HIV and other ways to protect you and your child from getting HIV. For more information on HIV and AIDS, please see the CDC's HIV/AIDS webpages.

Condoms

Condoms are available for free and without appointment. For more information, see our "Wear One Campaign" webpage.

Hepatitis B Vaccination

Clients who come for STD testing may be eligible to receive a hepatitis B vaccine at a cost of $23 (or less, based on clients’ ability to pay).

Hepatitis B is a serious disease caused by a virus that attacks the liver. The virus, which is called hepatitis B virus (HBV), can cause lifelong infection, cirrhosis (scarring) of the liver, liver cancer, liver failure, and death. Hepatitis B is spread when blood, semen, or other body fluid infected with the hepatitis B virus enters the body of someone who is not infected.

Hepatitis B is not spread through food or water, sharing eating utensils, breastfeeding, hugging, kissing, hand holding, coughing, or sneezing.

The Hepatitis B vaccine is available for all age groups to prevent HBV infection.
