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.

Intensive Health will not discriminate due to the inability to pay, due to the type of insurance or payor source, or due to a person’s race, color, sex, age, national origin, disability, religion, gender identity, or sexual orientation. 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).

Hepatitis C

We treat Hepatitis C (HCV) for all patients infected with chronic HCV and do not restrict treatment due to any of the following:

  • the patient’s current sobriety or substance use limitations
  • liver function status
  • viral level counts

Our nationally-recognized healthcare providers are specially trained through the ECHO mentoring program under Dr. Paul Kwo of Stanford University and the IU Fairbanks School of Public Health. We screen all new patients for Hepatitis C and HIV and provide education about these diseases and their transmission. We review a basic panel of labs to address more immediate health concerns such as kidney and liver function. All testing, medication management, education, and follow-up is completed through Intensive Health. We also provide PrEP and PEP for HIV prevention as well as treatment for other sexually transmitted infections.
