We work with the hardest hit communities in northern Kentucky, bringing hope and providing solutions for chronic illness. Our programs serve as a national model of collaboration in improving the population health by:

  • Addressing opioid addiction through cooperation with the Ohio River Valley Addiction Research Constorium;
  • Developing a strategic plan with an alliance of community partners for evidence-based early intervention and treatment for new substance users;
  • Shrinking the behavioral and medical health care gaps through the HRSA-funded Owen County Collaborative Addiction Treatment Initiative;
  • Offering a Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) Support Group for caregivers that also supports awareness, advocacy and research of NAS in the northern Kentucky region; and
  • Discovering more effective treatment regimes for patients with Type 2 diabetes, working alongside University of Louisville and St. Elizabeth Healthcare.
