  • Rapid HIV Testing and Counseling

    Horizon Health Center has been providing free and confidential, rapid HIV testing for over a decade.  No appointment is necessary.

    The rapid HIV test allows you to receive your results in minutes rather than days. Because it doesn’t require a second trip to a provider to receive results, the rapid HIV test helps ensure that people who go for testing learn their HIV status on the same visit.

    What to expect:

    Your fingertip is cleaned with alcohol and pricked with a lancet (needle) to get a small drop of blood. Results of the test can be read in as little as 20 minutes.  The FDA approved rapid HIV test is a screening test for HIV. If the test is negative, you don’t need to get further testing. Like all HIV screening tests, if the rapid test yields a positive, you’ll need to get another test to confirm the result.  All positive consumers are immediately linked with case management and healthcare services, providing a system of support and care to help ensure our patients achieve maximum health outcomes.

    All who come in for Rapid HIV testing also receive prevention counseling and risk reduction services.  Free condoms are available to all.  Consumers can also be referred to a Horizon healthcare provider to be assessed for PrEP upon request.

    Our Rapid HIV Testing Services can also be brought to your location.  We have provided testing at health fairs, workshops, and related events.

    Appointments are not necessary for testing and can be done at either of our Horizon locations.  Participants are provided education and counseling concerning risk reduction, disease facts, and treatment options.  Condoms are available free of charge.
