Outpatient Therapy


Where does the story of your life begin? For some, it began when you were little. For others, it begins today. It begins with the hope that your life can be better. After all, you are telling this story. The words are all yours, and sometimes, the story doesn't begin with "Once upon a time," but with "Today, I choose to mend my life."

Just like every story has a beginning, every journey has its first step. This is your first step. A simple act in response to the things you feel. You deserve a better life. You deserve to be well. You can rise above your illness or addiction. You can recover. We see it happen every day. And recovery does not start at the top of the mountain - it begins at rock bottom.

KRCC's Outpatient Clinics provide the help you'll need to turn your life around. Your first appointment with one of our clinicians will get you started on a new road. In addition to counseling and therapy, you'll also be connected to programs and services that can help you with all of your needs. Do you have an addiction you'd like to overcome? Are you trying to help a family member live a richer, fuller life with a mental illness? Do you need a place to live? Or maybe you just need help getting back on your feet as you deal with the affects of depression, anxiety, or other struggles in your life? That's why we're here! And we will help you every step of the way.

Remember: mental health is just as important as physical health. Like our bodies, sometimes our minds need to get healthy, too. You can never be truly well in life if you don't address the needs of both. We're all on that same road together. We all need to work on ourselves, and the decision you're making today is full of strength and determination.

Now, let's begin.

What We Provide

Our Outpatient Clinics offer individual, group, and family therapy and/or substance abuse counseling, as well as medication management services, through licensed or credentialed health professionals.

KRCC’s outpatient therapists provide needed services to help clients live safer and more independent lives by targeting the issues limiting the client’s participation in daily activities. Outpatient therapists provide screenings, assessments, and treatment for a variety of behavioral health problems.

Referrals and support through other agencies will be made as needed.

We accept Medicaid, Medicare, and most private insurance. If needed, we can help you sign up for expanded Medicaid, and we can enroll you in the Health Benefit Exchange.

How to Make a Referral

Perhaps you're trying to help someone else along on their journey. Sometimes, there's someone we know - a loved one, friend, or if you're a medical professional, a patient of yours - who needs a hand up in life. If someone has trusted you enough to share part of their story with you, then we want to help you give them the support they need.

You should consider making a referral if:

  • The problem or request is beyond your expertise.
  • The person acknowledges there's a problem, but is reluctant to talk to you about it.
  • The nature of the problem needs medical attention as well as someone to listen.
  • There is immediate danger to the person or to someone else.

Always be aware that many people, even if they ask for your help, are embarrassed and uncertain about doing so. One way you can help is to support them, address their fears, and point them in the right direction. Be honest with them and tell them you're going to call KRCC and recommend an appointment. So, if you're comfortable with the idea, you should offer to go with the person to their first visit and call to make an appointment that works for both of you, or encourage them to make the call for the appointment themselves.

Releasing Your Client Information
Referral sources, concerned friends, and family members often want to participate in the ongoing care a person receives. To help maintain good communication while also making sure to honor someone's privacy, clients need to sign releases of information that identify what type of information can be shared about their care and who can receive this information.
