Outcomes were assessed at six months by clinicians who were involved in the patients' treatment; data were available for 2,745 people. Compared with the situation before commitment, rates of involvement in services had increased markedly—for example, for case management, 100 percent compared with 53 percent; for medication management, 88 percent compared with 66 percent; and for substance abuse services, 40 percent compared with 24 percent. Problems in self-care and community living dropped by 23 percent on average, and comparable improvements were seen in other functional domains. Harmful behaviors dropped by 44 percent, including a 47 percent decrease in physical harm to others. Arrest, incarceration, psychiatric hospitalization, and homelessness all dropped by between 74 percent and 87 percent. It seems clear that, as a group, patients did better with assisted outpatient treatment than they had previously.
