Does anyone know a site where they have a free clinic search. Or do you know any free clinics in or around Rockland Massachusetts.

Planned Parenthoods by ZIP Code will find you the nearest Planned Parenthood. It's unlikely that it will be free but a sliding scale is likely.

Why don't you look in the phonebook to see if there are any PPs listed there, or any other sexual health clinics? Even if you can't drive, you can bike, take a taxi, take a bus, etc.

Does your local public health unit have any suggestions?

planned parenthood is definitely in massachusetts. their website is www.pplm.org.
they are located in worcester, springfield and boston/allston.
here is a site listing planned parenthood clinics in MA: http://www.pplm.org/clinic/pplm2.html.

however, it sounds like the center in quincy might be your best bet. i don't know how old you are, but that wouldn't be a long commuter rail trip...

Care to post that list in this thread? Especially if you can add some experiences after you go.

I hope you find a way to get there. Can any of your friends drive?
