What is a therapeutic community?
In general, therapeutic communities (TCs) are drug-free residential settings that use a hierarchical model with treatment stages that reflect increased levels of personal and social responsibility. To learn more about TCs, see the
Therapeutic Communities Research Report
from the National Institute on Drug Abuse. Also see the
Substance Abuse and Crime
section of the Office of Justice Programs website for additional information.
