Youth Addiction Treatment
We can help.
If you or a loved one is grappling with addiction, CHNK Behavioral Health can help. Our substance use disorder treatment program is designed specifically for adolescents. We’re proud to treat Northern Kentucky youth locally, since this allows a client’s family to be involved. Family involvement is statistically proven to have positive impact on treatment.
CHNK Chief Medical Officer Dr. Joseph Rieman, a board-certified child psychiatrist, leads a diverse treatment team of physical and behavioral healthcare professionals who specialize in co-occurring disorders (e.g., having a diagnosed mental illness and problematic drug and/or alcohol use).
Northern Kentucky is in the midst of an unprecedented addiction epidemic with few infrastructure resources to address critical needs, particularly as they relate to adolescents. The number of heroin overdoses in NKY has tripled since 2011. Nearly 9% of adolescents (ages 12 – 17) in Kentucky have participated in illegal drug use. Of those youth who use drugs, a staggering 82.5% do not receive treatment – a number that rises to 91.8% for youth who use alcohol. CHNK Behavioral Health can change those numbers.
A Treatment Model that Works
CHNK’s Intensive Outpatient (IOP) Services provide substance use education and therapy for adolescents age 13 and up, as well as their families. The 10-week program consists of three weekly group counseling sessions. Each session is three hours long, and one is dedicated to family group counseling. Random drug screenings are conducted onsite.
CHNK uses The Seven Challenges treatment model for our IOP program. This nationally recognized evidence-based model for treating adolescent addiction meets an addicted youth where s/he is – usually resistant and reluctant to change habits – instead of where adults think the youth should be (ready, willing, and prepared to quit immediately). The model stresses the importance of openness, honesty, and decision making. Clients in the program work on self-evaluation, communication, and goal setting to help evaluate their choices.
The IOP program operates out of the Deaconess Health Check at CHNK office (525 W. Fifth Street, Suite 219, Covington, KY 41011). Conveniently located in downtown Covington, the office offers complimentary off-street parking. A TANK bus stop is also located just outside the building.
Payment options for our addiction treatment services include Medicaid, private insurance, and self-pay.
