Costs and benefits of day treatment with community care for schizophrenic patients

Costs and benefits of day treatment with community care for schizophrenic patients

Schizophrenia Bulletin 17(3): 411-419

The feasibility of day treatment with community care for schizophrenic patients was tested by means of a longitudinal randomized experiment with 34 experimentals and 16 controls: 38 percent could be treated satisfactorily in a day program that included a very active ambulatory service. The new approach did not improve prognosis with respect to psychiatric symptomatology, social role disabilities, or number of readmissions during the first year of followup. Total cost of treatment was less for day-treatment patients than for ordinary clinical patients.
