Integrated Addiction Medical Home
Intensive Health is an integrated addiction medical home which is a comprehensive primary care setting for those in recovery or struggling with the disease of addiction. Services offered are primary care, behavioral health care, infectious disease (ID) treatment, and substance use disorder treatment. This is done holistically in a recovery friendly environment, giving patients the best support and an avenue for success in addiction recovery and ID treatment. The integrated medical home model engages medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid and alcohol use disorders, specifically buprenorphine and Vivitrol, and provides counseling and behavioral modification therapy for substance use disorders and co-occurring disorders. The program utilizes engagement with other providers and programs. Stepworks is the only program operating under this model in Kentucky, which started in 2017.
Behavioral Health Care
At Intensive Health, we provide behavioral health care in various settings including individual and group counseling. Our staff consists of qualified mental health professionals who individualize treatment to meet the needs and goals of the patient they are working with. It is a nurse practitioner-led, team-based program that also employs physicians with a combined 60+ years of addiction medicine experience.
We don’t discriminate based on race, age, religion, sex, or gender. We believe in providing individualized care to meet each patient’s needs. We provide flexible scheduling and 24-hour on-call services. A sliding fee schedule is available upon application and approval. Intensive Health accepts most major insurances including Medicare and Medicaid (See Accepted Insurances).
At IH we treat hepatitis C (HCV) according to insurance guidelines regarding time since infection and time in sobriety. Current regulations restrict to the type of provider (GI, hepatology, ID), but due to special credentialing through the Passport payor we are able to treat independently. All patients are screened on admission for HCV/HIV and provided education regarding disease and transmission. Patients are referred to specialists via telehealth for a one-time consultation where necessary based on insurance guidelines. We review a basic panel of labs that allows us to address more immediate health concerns such as kidney and liver function. All testing, medication management, education, and follow-up is completed through our addiction medical home.
