AID Gwinnett/RicCrawford Clinic, a not for profit organization, was founded in 1990 in Gwinnett County by a grass roots group of concerned parents and volunteers dealing with family members and friends infected with HIV/AIDS. They were driven to provide supportive services and prevention education.Local medical care was a critical need for our patients. In 2003 AID Gwinnett received funding and The Ric Crawford Clinic was born. The clinic was now able to provide high quality, compassionate patient care with a comprehensive, multidisciplinary medical staff. To date, AID Gwinnett/Ric Crawford Clinic has assisted over 2,300 patients and their families in addition to reaching over 10,00,00 in our HIV/AIDS prevention and testing programs.
Positive Impact was founded in 1993 to provide no-cost behavioral health care to people living with HIV and their caregivers and family members. The agency is now the only AIDS service organization in Georgia to be accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities. Positive Impact provides mental health counseling, licensed intensive outpatient substance abuse treatment and the MISTER Center’s prevention programs, which includes HIV testing and counseling, as well as STI testing and treatment. On January 4, 2015, AID Gwinnett opened a branch of its Ric Crawford Clinic on-site at Positive Impact’s Midtown Atlanta location to provide HIV primary care to newly diagnosed clients and those out of HIV-related primary care.
