At last there is a guide to community-based treatment of the severely and chronically mentally ill.

A model that has spread exponentially since its founding in the 1970s, assertive community treatment is brought up to the minute in this book. In addition to laying out the basics of staffing and running a community-based treatment program, Drs. Stein and Santos offer guidance on such pertinent issues as financing the program in today's economy and treating drug abusers or homeless persons.
