St. Lucie County Children’s Services Council – Our Children – Our Community – Our Future – Opens in a new window
The Teen Zone program is funded by Children’s Services Council of St. Lucie County. The Children’s Services Council is a dedicated source of revenue established by voter referendum to improve the lives of children and families in St. Lucie County.

General Information:

Teen Zone operates after the regular clinic closes so only Teen Zone clients are there. An appointment is not required so it's good to arrive as close to 2 pm as possible. 

Visits can be long because we try to take care of everything (education, testing and treatment) in one visit.  Expect 2 hours or more on your first visit.

The Visit:

On your first visit you'll be asked to fill out paperwork about your health. Once the paperwork is complete you'll be given a number. When your number is called you will go to triage where you'll be asked about your health, why you came to teen zone, and what services you need. 

New clients then see the Disease Intervention Specialist who will go over your STD risks and STD testing. Next, you'll go to the lab for pregnancy and STD testing.

If you need birth control you'll go to the Nurse who will discuss ways to prevent pregnancy including abstinence.  If you want to start the Pill or the Depo shot after learning about how they work a Doctor or Nurse Practitioner will help you decide what is best for you.  If you need STD treatment the provider will go over that with you and the Nurse will give you the medicine.

After seeing medical staff you have the opportunity to speak with a Case Manager who will answer any further questions you may still have. You can ask us anything!
