    Correctional Therapeutic Community (CTC) for Substance Abusers is an in-prison residential treatment intervention for incarcerated offenders who have histories of multiple drug-involved arrests and chronic substance abuse, are eligible for the in-prison work release program, and are 6 months from prison .   The fact that the therapeutic community is expected to exist within an institutional framework makes it all the more interesting. Therapeutic communities, by their very nature, exemplify the process of thinking outside the box. In the case of corrections, as mentioned, they represent a community within a community that is truly unique.

    The learning process in the therapeutic community comes from the community itself. The community is the agent of change. In a healthy therapeutic community, one learns positive pro-social values and models them in the community. How can you benefit from the way learning takes place in a therapeutic community?

    'The idea of a therapeutic community is a complex one, even more so in a prison environment. Evaluating its work and its effects is a challenging process. This book describes, in a highly engaging way, how such a community operated - and endeavoured to meet the needs of its members while also addressing its task of returning them to society.   “If we look at the adult side, we have created these therapeutic communities in a couple of adult prisons, in R.J. Donovan and in Lancaster, a couple of other places where we use smaller cohorts of individuals and we engage a different kind of programming with them while they’re still housed in our correctional facilities,” Skinner said.
