More services

In addition to STD testing, Red Door offers the following services.

Syringe services

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) during regular clinic hours. 

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.

 

Photo shows the Red Door's syringe services office. Two pieces of Indigenous artwork hang on the walls next to a display case with brochures. The room is lit by a salt rock lamp and the soft yellow glow of a standing lamp. A desk is in the bottom right corner with two chairs in the bottom left.

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.

Supportive services

We offer a support group for people living with HIV. The group is currently meeting virtually.

For information, email reddoor@hennepin.us

Birth control

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

Condoms and lube

Pick them up at the clinic free of charge. Red Door has non-latex condoms and internal condoms (formerly known as female condoms) - ask any staff member for assistance.

MNsure Assistance

If you need assistance applying to the MNsure site, have questions regarding MNsure, or would like help with medical insurance renewals, contact our MNsure application counselor Luis (Angel) at 612-543-9309 or by email at Luis.SantosHenriquez@hennepin.us.

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 confidentially. Ask about partner notification when you come in for STD testing.
