Medical and Behavioral Health Services at KJCC

KJCC contracts medical and behavioral health services through Corizon Health Inc.

The medical department is comprised of a health services administrator, a director of nursing, a team of 10 nursing staff, a medical doctor, a dentist and an optometrist.

The KJCC medical clinic is staffed 24-hours a day to provide necessary medical care to the youth in our custody. This medical care consists of:

  • Daily open access to nursing care
  • Chronic Care Clinic to address ongoing health concerns
  • On-site Radiology & Laboratory services
  • Medication services

Our behavioral health department consists of a behavioral health coordinator, five behavioral health professionals, with one specifically assigned to our intake units and another assigned to our female youth, three licensed addictions counselors and two sex offender treatment therapists. KJCC also has two activity therapists and a reentry coordinator. We also have a psychiatrist at the facility for 16 hours each week to provide individual services and medication management. Services provided through the behavioral health team include individual therapy, group therapy, activity therapy services, substance abuse treatment, sexual offender treatment, dialectical behavioral therapy and psychological testing.

Coming very soon to KJCC: our behavioral health department will have a full-time family therapist available to assist families with working through difficult issues, preparing for the transition home and repairing damaged relationships within the family system. These services will be available in the evenings and weekends for the convenience of parent and family schedules.
