C.L.E.A.R. - Choosing Life: Empowerment! Action! Results!
C.L.E.A.R. is a FREE, short-term counseling program for people living with HIV. It is CDC- backed, evidenced-based, and promotes healthy living.
Clients meet one-on-one with a counselor for about one hour, once a week, for a minimum of five
sessions and a maximum of 26 sessions, depending on their specific health risks. To offset the
costs of participating in C.L.E.A.R., we offer day-long bus passes for our clients to attend sessions.
We also provide Walmart gift cards intermittently throughout the program.
Please note that C.L.E.A.R. is not a substitute for other behavioral health, mental health, or substance use programs. But, we do work very well alongside them, as we talk more specifically about living with HIV while working to improve our clients’ lives! Our counselors are also trained to refer our clients to other services they may need.
The following are components of C.L.E.A.R. that clients say they enjoy:
Meeting with a counselor individually to talk about what’s on their mind
Setting goals and having their counselor check on their progress
Confidential space to discuss thoughts and feelings
Practicing effective communication skills
Learning more about HIV and how to stay healthy
Learning effective problem solving, mindfulness, and relaxation techniques
Develop confidence about disclosure and learning the right time disclose HIV status
