The Resource & Wellness Center is a critical component of SLAC that helps HIV+ persons navigate the often challenging task of taking control of his or her treatment.
Located near the Comprehensive Care Clinic at the W.O. Moss Memorial Health Clinic, the R&WC is often the first stop for those newly diagnosed or those new to the area.
Staff provides free HIV testing and assists clients who test positive with linkage and navigation services within the healthcare system, usually within the same day. With the Alere Determine Combo, results are available within 20 minutes.
Other services offered at the R&WC include: health education for the individual (and partners and family), risk reduction planning, community education (such as HIV 101 and other curriculum), as well as support groups and health promotion.
We are here to support you.
