The majority of therapeutic communities treating drug users are 'concept-based': they are hierarchical with the staff forming a chain of command. In this authoritative new study, the authors explore the most significant differences between this approach and democratic therapeutic communities, including their hierarchical structures, their confrontational group sessions and their total prohibition of drugs.
