Outpatient Services

  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 negatively impact their daily lives at home, in the classroom, at work, and/or within the community. Treatment takes place in a community-based setting such as a classroom, home, CHNK’s outpatient offices, or even via telehealth – 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:

Individual/Family Therapy
We offer both individual and family therapy for children, adolescents, adults, and families grappling with mental illness, addiction, or behaviors that negatively impact their daily lives at home, in the classroom, in the workplace, and within the community.
Where: In person or via telehealth

Medication Management
CHNK’s board-certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner provides comprehensive psychiatric evaluations, medication management, and brief supportive therapy for patients aged 6 and older. As a registered GeneSight provider, our Nurse Practitioner also offers pharmacogenomics testing and review of the results; this testing studies how a person’s individual genes affect the body’s response to certain medicines. Practice specialties include, but are not limited to, depression, anxiety, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and mood disorders.
Where: CHNK Outpatient Services Office (Covington, KY) and via telehealth (for established patients)

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 (Covington, KY)

Day Treatment Program
In partnership with select Northern Kentucky School districts, CHNK offers 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, CHNK Burlington campus, and various NKY schools

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
Designed for adults aged 18 and older, CHNK’s PHP uses a trauma-informed, multidisciplinary approach to address and treat significant primary mental health diagnoses including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia spectrum disorders. The program also addresses and treats substance use issues. PHPs are intended to reduce the need for hospitalization or residential care.
Where: CHNK Outpatient Services Office (Covington, KY)

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
We offer multiple IOP programs that follow a structured, trauma-informed, and evidence-based approach to therapeutic care for children and adults who need help recognizing, managing, and overcoming mental health and/or substance use disorders.
Where: CHNK Outpatient Services Office (Covington, KY) and select Northern Kentucky schools

Family Preservation Program (FPP)
This program helps to strengthen families and keep children safely at home rather than being placed into foster care or a group residential treatment center. FPP is a collaboration between CHNK and the Kentucky Department for Community-Based Services (DCBS), so all referrals into the program are made by DCBS after confirming that a family meets all eligibility requirements.
Where: In person or via telehealth

Targeted Case Management (TCM)
For youth, adults, 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: In person or via telehealth
