Needle exchange

Sharing needles and works such as cookers and cottons can transmit infections, such as Hepatitis C and HIV. Red Door offers needles and works at no cost to you so you can use fresh supplies every time.

You can drop off used needles and get new needles and works (cookers, cottons, ties, and alcohol preps) Monday 9:00am-1:00pm, Wednesday 9:00am-7:00pm, Friday 1:00-4:00pm. 

Tell the receptionist or any Red Door staff that you'd like to drop-off or exchange needles.

Bring used needles in a puncture-proof plastic bottle with a screw-on cap, such as a soda or laundry detergent bottle.

If you only have a few needles to drop off, you can put them in the marked boxes located inside the bathroom.

Stop an overdose with Narcan

Narcan (Naloxone) is a medication used to stop heroin or other opiate (e.g., percocet, oxycontin) overdose. Anyone can get Narcan without a prescription at Red Door for themselves, friends or family members.

Ask the receptionist or any Red Door staff for Narcan. We’ll ask you a few questions, but will not report names or addresses to anyone.

Birth control

Red Door offers pills, patch, ring, IUD, and Depo shot, for women up to age 30. 

Condoms and lube

Pick them up at the clinic, free of charge. Red Door has non-latex condoms and female condoms.

Sexual health education

You can talk with our sexual health educator, at no cost to you, about all topics related to healthy sexuality including birth control, safer sex and healthy sexual relationships.

Our educator can help you feel comfortable and confident about your body, your relationships and your decision making.

You can meet with her during your visit or set up a specific appointment. Call the clinic at 612-543-5555.

Notifying your partners

If you have an STD, we recommend telling your sexual partner(s) so they can get tested and treated. Red Door has specially trained staff who can find and notify your sexual partners. Ask about partner notification when you come in for STD testing.

You can also notify partners using an online partner notification tool. Visit inSpot.
