What is Our HIV Program?

This program provides early intervention services to people exhibiting at-risk behaviors, which could lead to seropositive (does have antibodies) status.

The HIV program serves all Meridian locations; focusing on eliminating or reducing substance abuse by at-risk individuals who recognize the need for substance abuse services.

After receiving a personal risk profile review, clients may voluntarily submit to both pre- and post-test counseling upon consulting with program staff. Some may be referred to the program after previously being diagnosed with a seropositive status.

The HIV program includes:

  • Assessment
  • Case Management
  • Risk Awareness and Reduction Education
  • Intervention
  • Outreach & Screening
  • Patient Care Eligibility Screening (Ryan White Services)
  • Infectious Disease Screening
  • Counseling
  • Medical Services

Enhanced services for special population groups include linkage to appropriate medical services, especially prenatal care, as well as HIV/AIDS medical treatment services, education, counseling and vocational/educational services.
