This study sought to determine the benefits of an assertive community treatment model (ACT) versus a continuing day-treatment program (CDTP) for the treatment of chronic mentally ill patients. The study utilized a quasi-experimental design with a matched-groups comparison of outcomes achieved by patients in two community mental health centers in the South Bronx area of New York City. The study assessed outcomes regarding hospital readmissions, quality of life, and housing and vocational rehabilitation. The sample size was 60, with 30 subjects in each group. Due to the small size and baseline differences between groups, nonparametric tests were the primary statistical analyses. (Author)
