Therapeutic Community

AADAP’s Therapeutic Community (TC) is a 3 to 6 month adult residential program that emphasizes five interrelated facets of living: values, decision-making, attitude, lifestyle, and self-direction. As an intense and structured learning environment, the TC is designed to create situations in which residents learn about their behaviors and attitudes. The key treatment tool regularly used is the group process. Supportive Services includes: mental health, legal, dental, health, GED, and random Urinalysis testing is conducted. The TC also accepts women/men with infant children.

The TC is designed to be a microcosm of the world at large and it is structured to be a learning environment. It is to reflect, as much as possible, day-to-day situations encountered in life. Within the 24-hour, 7-day/week structure, residents are provided the opportunity to teach and learn from each other. Clients learn to work and interact with each other in situations simulating that of the real world. In the process, they practice and “live” new and different lifestyles from ones they had been accustomed to living, as they prepare themselves for re-entry.
