In the TC or Therapeutic community based approach to treatment, drug abuse is viewed as disorder of the whole person. While the stated objective of TCs is to treat individual disorders, their larger purpose is to transform lifestyles and personal identities. Thus TC’s use the community as a method to help individuals change themselves. Its structure (social organization), as well as its people (staff and residents), and its daily regimen of activities (groups, meetings, work, play) are designed to facilitate healing, learning and change in the individual.
