This study examined outcomes of clients admitted to assertive community treatment (ACT) programs simultaneously implemented at six sites in northeastern Indiana. A total of 212 clients at risk for psychiatric rehospitalization were assessed upon admission and at six-months intervals for 18 months after admissions to ACT programs. Findings indicate that frequency of psychiatric hospitalization was reduced by one-third and the number of inpatients days by 50% after admissions to the program. Progressive improvements also occurred in quality of life as measured by both client and staff ratings (authors).
