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 youth and teenagers. 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. Our diverse treatment team of physical and behavioral healthcare professionals specialize in co-occurring disorders (e.g., having a diagnosed mental illness and problematic drug and/or alcohol use).
CHNK’s Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) provides 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. 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 Intensive Outpatient 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 at the corner of 5th and Philadelphia.
Payment options for our addiction treatment services include Medicaid, most commercial insurance, and self-pay.
