UCLA Vine Street Clinic

The UCLA Vine Street Clinic (UVSC) was established in 2005 in order to study the diffusion of HIV among methamphetamine user networks. Since that time, it has served as a site for clinical trials, behavioral research, and direct services focusing on the treatment of addiction, HIV prevention, and the intersection of the two. It is unique in its location, bringing the best in academia from UCLA into a transitional neighborhood of predominately working poor, an area designated as a medically underserved. The facility includes exam and counseling rooms for patient care, a lab for collection and storage of biological samples, and group meeting space. Current services available at the clinic are detailed below.
