Champions Services

Launched in 2012, Champions Community-Based Services benefit youth who have mental health needs and/or are exhibiting at-risk behavior that has negatively impacted their daily lives at home, in the classroom, and within the community. Treatment takes place in the school, home, or other community-based setting – whichever environment works best for the client and his or her family. On any given day, tens of thousands of youth in the Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky area have access to these services.

Children’s Home of Northern Kentucky also offers Champions Intensive Outpatient Services. Launched in 2015, our Intensive Outpatient (IOP) Services provide substance use education and therapy for adolescents age 13 or older, 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.

CHNK uses The Seven Challenges treatment model for our intensive outpatient services. Recognized as an evidence-based program by The SAMHSA National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices, the model is based on openness, honesty, and decision making. Participants work on self-evaluation, communication, and goal setting to help evaluate their choices both now and for the future. Random drug screenings are conducted onsite.
