Health and Community Services

Treatment

As of January 1, 2008, the Mental Health Care and Treatment Act provides a new treatment option, called a community treatment order (CTO), for a group of individuals who have often been difficult to serve because of their needs.

CTOs involve mandated treatment and care in the community under the supervision of the treating psychiatrist and an Assertive Case Management Team.
