Modified Therapeutic Communities and Adherence to Traditional Elements. Journal of Psychoactive Drugs read online review & book description:

Traditionally, therapeutic communities (TCs) for addiction treatment have been characterized by a treatment philosophy of "right living" and "community as method" delivered in long-term residential programs largely directed and managed by clients. The TC model has emphasized a reliance on confrontational group therapy, treatment phases, and a hierarchy based on tenure in the program and community roles (De Leon 2000; De Leon & Ziegenfuss 1986). The TC model is widely recognized in both the U.S. and Western Europe, and for nearly four decades researchers have documented its history, both positive and negative aspects of its method, and its results (De Leon 2000). Even as new addiction treatment technologies have emerged, studies have consistently shown the TC model to be an effective form of treatment, particularly for certain subpopulations that may be difficult to reach through other treatment methods. Recent studies have reported positive outcomes for the homeless mentally ill (De Leon et al. 2000), clients with co-occurring disorders (Sacks et al. 2008), and adolescents (Edelen et al. 2007). Other studies have examined the effectiveness of the model in other cultures. A recent study by Dekel and colleagues (2004) reported positive long-term outcomes in three TCs in Israel.
