Community Treatment Order Program

Type of Service

Case Management/Supportive Counselling & Services - Mental Health

Program Description

Community Treatment Orders (CTO) provide a legal mechanism for people with serious mental illness to receive treatment, support, and supervision in the community. In partnership with the client and service providers, a comprehensive plan is developed that is less restrictive than being hospitalized. This program is for people who experience recurrent hospitalizations, benefit from treatment and usually do not engage in outpatient follow-up. Only physicians can initiate a community treatment order, which is limited to six months in duration and may be renewed if criteria continues to be met. The CTO coordinator provides assistance with drafting the plan, ensuring rights advice and securing community services for the client. A CTO case manager may be available for support, monitoring and developing linkages to community supports if deemed necessary under the Community Treatment Plan. Model of service is psychosocial rehabilitation.
