Treatment Communities of America

TCA was founded in 1975 as a not for profit member-led professional association in the United States and Canada. The Therapeutic Community Model of Services has been evolving since 1946, with roots in social welfare, psychiatry, psychology, sociology and more recently, addiction treatment.

TCA is a consortium of over 600 programs providing an array of integrated services which include primary and preventive care, outreach, education, assessment, referral and follow-up, detoxification and crisis management, residential treatment with aftercare support, outpatient services, family therapy, mental health services, vocational assistance and job placement and emergency, transitional and permanent housing with supportive services.

TCA programs serve a broad sector of the community including pregnant and postpartum women and their dependent children, the homeless, adolescents, those with mental illness and addictive disorders, those afflicted with HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis C, inmates, ex-offenders, those involved with the criminal justice system, veterans and the National Guard.

TCA believes that addiction requires a diagnosis and diagnosis requires an appropriate level of treatment. Further, that treatment saves money and lives and that recovery restores families and communities.

Dr. Sushma D Taylor is currently the President of the Treatment Communities of America, the first woman in the history of the organization to be elected to such a position in the pre-eminent national association in the field.

Based in five counties (Los Angeles (3), San Diego, Alameda, San Francisco, Marin, and San Joaquin), WCRTS has been operating as a statewide program for over 15 years and serves as regional geographic service center hubs. Each regional program accepts referrals from any county and finds placement at one of the eight programs without a charge back to the referring county.

The WCRTS programs have achieved positive outcomes for keeping at-risk families safe and stable since their inception in 1993 as a national demonstration program. Annually, the programs average a 67% success rate at keeping families intact and 64% of heads of household are employed or in job training when they complete the program.
