Cleveland Clinic Lakewood

Cleveland medical Clinic

The HIV Services department encompasses community outreach education, prevention programming, testing, and treatment.

Early Intervention Program
The Early Intervention Program provides treatment for clients diagnosed with HIV/AIDS by combining the interdisciplinary services of medical, behavioral health, and case management.

HIV Testing Program
The HIV Testing program (the first site in Cleveland to offer such services) includes prevention, education, and treatment referrals in addition to testing. The Free Clinic is one of the only places in Greater Cleveland to provide both confidential and anonymous testing. We provide a finger prick rapid HIV test, giving clients their results in 20 minutes. Walk-in hours are Monday through Thursday from 1:00 – 7:00pm.

Syringe Exchange Program
The Free Clinic operates one of the only Syringe Exchange Programs in all of Ohio. This program focuses on reducing the incidence of HIV infection in high risk populations by providing injection drug users with clean supplies and education to slow the spread of blood borne disease. All needles are exchanged on a one-for-one basis so clients must have a used needle in order to receive one.

  • Hours: 9:00am - noon at HUMADAOP at 3305 West 25th Street
  • Hours: 1:00 – 3:00pm at East 83rd and Cedar Avenue

Syringes can also be exchanged on site at The Free Clinic Monday through Thursday between 11:00am – 7:00pm and Fridays between 10:00am – 5:00pm.

Project DAWN (Deaths Avoided With Naloxone)
Project DAWN is a community-based overdose prevention and education project. This collaboration with MetroHealth enables opioid users and people who care about users to visit The Free Clinic on a walk-in basis to pick up naloxone kits and receive instruction on how to recognize and respond to an overdose and how to administer intranasal naloxone to reverse an opioid overdose. Opioids include heroin and prescription pain medications, such as hydrocodone (Lorcet and Vicodin), oxycodone (Percocet), long acting opioids (Oxycontin, MS Contin and Methodone), and patches (Fentanyl), among others. No appointment is necessary. Walk-ins are welcome on Tuesdays from noon – 4:00pm and Fridays from 1:00 – 5:00pm. For more information call (216) 707-3438 or visit the Ohio Department of Health website.
