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 program is licensed by the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services. The TC program is licensed to serve 50 clients with a bed capacity of 50. The TC serves both male and female populations sentenced only 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.
