The inmate’s perception of the environment, whether in treatment or nontreatment, is also examined. Findings indicate that in-prison therapeutic communities have lower levels of disorder than nontreatment housing units and tend to produce more positive perceptions of the living environment among the inmates living by: Ideally, therapeutic facilities are separate from the rest of the prison so participants in treatment can live together in a community based on mutual help.
