Teen Matters clinics provide free, confidential services to youth ages 11 to 19 years.
Services provided include access to free condoms and other forms of birth control (birth control pills, Depo-Provera shot, Nuva ring, Plan B emergency contraception), sexually transmitted infection testing and treatment, HIV tests, pregnancy tests, pap smears, immunizations (including the HPV vaccine), relationship advice, nutrition and exercise advice, decision-making skills training, and abstinence education.
We also have a health educator available who can answer questions in person or by phone or text. The text line is 706-410-8558.
All services, exams, tests, medications, and contraceptives are free.
We welcome and encourage parental involvement, but parental consent is not required in order to use clinic services. We always respect the privacy of our patients, and we don't share patient information with anyone, even parents. In Georgia, state laws protect the privacy of minors seeking reproductive health services: http://www.sexetc.org/state/GA/
Both Athens clinics are located near bus stops, and we have free bus passes available.
