All Odyssey House facilities revolve conceptually around the idea of the "Therapeutic Community", often referred to as the ., in which residents hold themselves and others accountable in order to highlight problem behaviors and other therapeutic issues, bringing power to their own community. Peers can hold each other accountable through a system referred to as "Encounters". Residents write down a situation and the feelings they have in relation to it and it's addressed in a group setting a few weeks later. Encounters is designed with a focus on Conflict Resolution Skills. Groups are held throughout the day, providing structure. Most facilities run the following groups: Encounters (Conflict Resolution), Problem Solving Group, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy Skills (DBT Skills), Life Skills, Recovery Maintenance, Relapse Prevention, and Level Groups. These programs are largely level based, in which the residents move up through the levels by demonstrating consistent positive behaviors and completing therapeutic assignments designed to increase a variety of skills and coping strategies. As the residents progress through the levels they gain more freedoms and responsibilities, designed to serve as a reward and present new issues with which to work on. Level peers are expected to work together as a team and accomplish varying responsibilities. Level progression is evaluated by each residents personal therapist and the treatment team.
