This manual is a guide to the development of a modified therapeutic community (TC) for the engagement and retention of homeless mentally ill chemical abusers (MICAs). The Salvation Army operated the modified TC described, A New Beginning, from August 1009 to August 2001 in the Kingsboro 80-bed homeless shelter located in Brooklyn, NY. Designed for MICA men who are seeking shelter rather than treatment, A New beginning uses principles and methods of a modified TC combined with special strategies that motivate and engage these men in treatment while preparing them for housing. This manual describes the planning, development, and implementation of the program in a shelter. (Authors)
