Originally launched in 2012 as Champions Community-Based Services, CHNK’s Outpatient Services benefit children, adolescents, adults, and families who have mental health barriers, need addiction treatment, or are exhibiting other behaviors that have negatively impacted their daily lives at home, in the classroom, at work, and/or within the community. Treatment takes place in the school, home, or other community-based setting – whichever environment works best for the client. On any given day, tens of thousands of youth and families in the Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky area have access to the following outpatient services provided by CHNK:
Therapeutic Academic Services
In partnership with Covington Independent Public Schools (CIPS), we marry traditional academic services with therapeutic treatment services for high-risk middle and high school students unable to navigate a traditional school environment.
Where: CHNK Devou Park campus in Covington, KY
Day Treatment Program
In partnership with three Northern Kentucky School districts (Boone County Schools, Erlanger-Elsmere Schools, and CIPS), we offer comprehensive therapeutic and academic care for elementary, middle school, and high school age youth, providing an environment in which students who struggle to navigate a traditional classroom environment can better manage anxiety, emotions, problematic behavior, and mental illness while still engaging in learning.
Where: CHNK Devou Park campus, Howell Elementary, and CHNK Burlington campus
Our Pillars of Support program benefits Erlanger-Elsmere students aged 10 to 14; the program helps students develop positive social skills and healthy recreation habits, work towards academic success, and address behavioral health needs.
Where: Tichenor Middle School
Launched in 2012, these services benefit children, adolescents, and families who have mental health barriers, need addiction treatment, or are exhibiting other behaviors that have negatively impacted their daily lives at home, in the classroom, in the workplace, and within the community.
Where: We treat in whichever environment works best for the client and his or her family – home, school, CHNK office, or other community setting
Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP)
We offer multiple IOPs that follow a structured, trauma-informed, and evidence-based approach to therapeutic care for adolescents and teenagers who need help recognizing, managing, and overcoming mental health and/or substance use disorders.
Where: CHNK Outpatient Services office, (525 W. Fifth Street, Covington, KY) and multiple NKY schools
Targeted Case Management (TCM)
For youth and families requiring assistance outside of their behavioral health needs, our Targeted Case Managers provide individualized attention that helps connect each client and family with other community resources and/or services that may be beneficial to them.
Where: CHNK Outpatient Services office and/or the client’s home
