What is Assisted Outpatient Treatment?
“Assisted outpatient treatment” (AOT) – sometimes known as “court-ordered outpatient treatment” or “outpatient commitment” – is the practice of placing individuals with severe mental illness and a history of struggling with voluntary treatment adherence under court order to follow a prescribed treatment plan while living in the community. Across the nation, studies have shown that AOT can dramatically improve treatment outcomes — substantially reducing the likelihood of repeat hospitalization and/or criminal justice involvement — for its target population.
