KRCC provides a Therapeutic Rehabilitation program for people with serious mental illness, who require less than 24 hours of care a day but more than outpatient counseling. Services are designed to promote social, personal adjustment and daily living skills. Adults in the program are encouraged to retain control of their lives, to set their own goals and to participate fully in decisions affecting their future.


KRCC provides Case Management services to assist consumers with their medical, education, social and other support needs. Recipients must be at least 18 years of age, have an Axis I Diagnosis of severe mental illness (as defined in the DSM IV, American Psychiatric Association's diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) and not be in immediate danger to themselves or to others. They must not be actively abusing substances.
