Community Treatment Order (CTO)

Community Treatment Order Services provide intensive support to those who have a mental illness and have been issued a Community Treatment Order to make sure they adhere to their treatment plan. The goal of this program is to make sure that people with serious mental illness get the care and treatment they need.

What is a Community Treatment Order (CTO)?

• A CTO is an order issued by a physician and agreed to by the individual (and/or their Substitute Decision Maker) which allows the individual to receive care and treatment in their own community, which is less restrictive than a hospital setting.

• A CTO is for those who have had repeated psychiatric admissions and who do not voluntarily follow through on their treatment plan


Our team will work with you to help you with such things as meeting basic needs, developing skills, accessing mental and physical health supports, and other community resources.
