STDs / HIV Testing & Prevention

We provide confidential testing, diagnosis, treatment and counseling for common sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV, for both men and women. Our services are available to anyone, regardless of the county you live in, and for all people of childbearing age.

A nurse will ask questions about your health and your testing needs. It is important to understand your risks for acquiring an STD or HIV, and the nurse can help you identify steps you can take that may prevent future infections.  Our nurses are kind, caring, and non-judgmental, so you can feel free to share openly and get the best care possible.

Results for STD testing will be available within 7-14 business days, depending on the test. Results can be given over the phone with a password: call 828.884.3135.

Anyone who tests positive for gonorrhea, chlamydia, or syphilis is offered treatment at no charge.

It is important to identify sexual partners who are at risk and get them tested and treated as well. STDs can be passed back and forth between sexual partners, and can even harm the health of an unborn baby. Those who have tested positive for STDs should be retested 3 months after treatment.

Free of charge. Offered by appointment. Call 828.884.3135.

Family Planning & Sexual Health

Our family planning service provides a complete physical exam, counseling and education, and follow-up including appropriate method of birth control. 

Services are available for all persons of childbearing age. Minors do not need parental or guardian consent for counseling, testing, or treatment.

Cost of services is determined by income. Condoms are available free of charge at the front desk during regular business hours. Other services are available by appointment. Call 828.884.3135.

Pregnancy Care Management

The Care Management for High-Risk Pregnancies (CMHRP) program is provided by local health departments to support pregnant women who are eligible for Medicaid and may be at risk for adverse birth outcomes. Supported by Medicaid, this program helps coordinate services between health care providers and ensures that social needs related to health are addressed.

Obstetric providers use a standardized pregnancy risk screening tool to help identify Medicaid recipients at risk for an adverse birth outcome and then refer these individuals to the CMHRP program. To make a referral, please call 828.884.1736.


Care Coordination For Children

Care Management for At-Risk Children (CMARC) services are provided by the local health department for at-risk children from birth to 5 years of age. This Medicaid program coordinates services between health care providers, community programs and supports, and family support programs. 

Families may request services directly or be referred by doctors and hospitals, agencies, and community members. To make a referral to the CC4C program, please call 828.884.1736.
