Assisted Outpatient Treatment Services


Assisted Outpatient Treatment Services (AOTS) also known as Involuntary Outpatient Commitment (IOC) is a program that provides court ordered mental health treatment, intensive case management and assistance to a select group of mental health consumers who have been resistant and have had difficulty engaging in outpatient treatment. The goal of AOTS is to enable these consumers to live safely in the community, to avoid repeated inpatient hospitalizations and/or incarcerations, and to ensure that they have access to comprehensive outpatient services. Through the use of a court-ordered treatment plan, consumers have the opportunity to better engage in consistent, ongoing treatment and to ultimately graduate to less restrictive mental health services.
