Where to Get PrEP and PEP in New York City?

The City of New York provides a listing of clinics where anyone can find a clinic that provides PrEP and PEP.

PrEP: If you worry about being exposed to HIV, ask your doctor or nurse if PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) may be right for you.

PEP: If you think you were recently exposed to HIV, go immediately to your regular medical provider, a health clinic or an emergency room and ask for emergency PEP (post-exposure prophylaxis).

Meth Positive Networks

The Center NYC

1. What is the mission of your organization?

We are a community center-based, LGBTQ specific substance use program offering specialized crystal meth addiction programming in a supportive and affirming environment, both virtually and in-person. We offer both abstinence-based treatment and harm reduction services along with connection to the broad array of additional services, supports, and programs at The Center itself and via linkage & referral to our many community partners.

2. Qualifying Criteria for the program:

The Center’s outpatient substance use treatment program for youth (“Center Recovery Youth”) is designed specifically to help LGBTQ+ young people, ages 13-25, make healthy decisions about drugs and alcohol.

Clients who wish to enroll in harm reduction services at The Center are asked to complete a comprehensive intake assessment. Currently, intakes are scheduled and being held virtually throughout the week. The intake includes a sexual health screening which aims to identify individuals who may benefit from PrEP, PEP, and other forms of prevention education.

3. Types of services that are offered (including mobile and/or in-person services):

Currently all of our program participants have the option for either telehealth (including video and/or phone) and in-person services for all individual and group services. There are currently 7 in-person groups occurring at The Center with plans to add additional groups back in-person.

4. Ways to enroll into the program

The quickest way to connect with us is via email at [email protected]
