Abstract

Not all residential drug abuse treatment programs are therapeutic communities (TCs), not all TCs are in residential settings, and not all programs that call themselves TCs employ the same social and psychological models of treatment. The term ''therapeutic community'' is widely used to represent a distinct approach in almost any setting, includingcommunity residences, hospital wards, prisons, and homeless shelters. One effect of this labeling has been to cloud understanding of the TCas a drug abuse treatment approach, how well it works, where it worksbest, and for which clients it is most appropriate. This article attempts to further a general understanding of residential TCs. Distinctions are drawn between residential drug abuse treatment and residential TCs. The diversity of programs within the TC modality is described in terms of modifications of the model and applications to special populations; and the essential elements of the TC program model are briefly outlined. Finally, movement into the mainstream has surfaced issues for the TC in terms of policy and practice, several of which are highlighted.
