Charles River Community Health Center has birth control options and emergency contraception. Also, it has same day appointments but you will not be able to get an IUD and implant the same day as your appointment. Free services are available under ABCD but you will need to meet with a provider first, which will be billed.

 

During Covid-19, Charles River Community Health Center is conducting phone consultations before all in-person visits. A provider can determine if an in-person visit is necessary. The center is still seeing existing patients, but is limiting new patients to those who are pregnant or newborns.
