Community Treatment Order Program
This program co-ordinates mental health services for individuals living in Southeastern Ontario who meet the criteria for a Community Treatment Order Application:
* diagnosis of serious mental disorder
* pattern of admission to a psychiatric facility
* a condition that stabilizes with inpatient treatment
* a history of stopping treatment after discharge to the community, and requiring readmission to hospital
Providence Care Mental Health Services assumed administrative responsibility for the Community Treatment Order Program on April 1, 2003, as recommended by the Southeastern Ontario District Community Treatment Order Advisory Committee.
