Therapeutic Community

The purpose of the Therapeutic Community (TC) is to increase the opportunity for success of adult felony offenders in an intensive, long-term residential treatment setting.

The Therapeutic Community (TC) opened its doors at the Adult Residential Center in February 1998. This 6-month drug treatment program is designed for offenders who have extensive drug abuse and criminal histories. The TC program is licensed to serve 50 clients.

The TC serves both male and female populations sentenced  by the Johnson County District Court. In addition to the many services and activities provided by community volunteers, on-site mental health counseling is available through licensed TC Staff as well as crisis counseling through Johnson County Mental Health.
