He explains that the TC is different from other treatment models in that it views substance abuse as a disorder of the whole person, and aims to treat that whole person, not just the drug addiction. Thus, TCs create social living situations where all aspects of a person's personality are displayed in work, formal groups and social activities, and then addressed directly by the community. 54 minutes Volume II: COMMUNITY AS METHOD De Leon explains how a therapeutic community uses its social environment to change individuals' behaviors, lifestyles and identities. The community is the method itself: constant participation, evaluation, feedback and reinforcement of personal responsibility are core components of daily life. 44 minutes Volume III: COMPONENTS OF GENERIC THERAPEUTIC COMMUNITY De Leon goes beyond theory to explain the specific operations of an ideal therapeutic community: what happens on a daily basis, what the physical space looks like, what activities are involved, and what are the functions and roles of the staff and community members.
