Outpatient Community Treatment Services are offered to those individuals who want mental health treatment services, but who are not in need of an in-patient level of care.
These services may include
- Specialized professional medical consultation
- Physical examination
- Psychiatric evaluation
- Lab tests such as HIV and TB testing
- Treatment planning
- Therapy (individual, group and family)
- Aftercare planning and follow-up
Some programs are specifically designed for certain populations, such as women or youths. People who temporarily need a higher intensity of services may benefit from Intensive Outpatient services from 5 to 10 hours a week.
