What is CLEAR? Choosing Life: Empowerment! Action! Results!
CLEAR is a FREE, short-term counseling program for people living with HIV. CLEAR 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 costs of participating in CLEAR, 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 CLEAR 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, as necessary
The following are components of CLEAR 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
