View all of our information about therapeutic community.

We explore a range of subjects about what therapeutic community is and how it is used as an effective model for the treatment of addiction issues.

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse regarding types of treatment programs, “The best-known residential treatment model is the therapeutic community (TC), with planned lengths of stay of between 6 and 12 months. TCs focus on the “re-socialization” of the individual and use the program’s entire community—including other residents, staff, and the social context—as active components of treatment”.
