Community Treatment Orders Program
Gateway works closely with the Niagara Health System to provide intense case management support services to individuals suffering from mental illness in the Niagara Region, who would otherwise be in and out of hospital.
What is the Community Treatment Orders Program?
This program is a partnership with the Niagara Health System, doctors and other community health professionals with the goal of effectively providing the necessary level of service and increasing the probability of success in the community, for people who would otherwise remain in hospital or who are frequently admitted.
How does it work?
Community Treatment Orders are mutual agreements by all parties that are consent based and can be revoked at any time by any party involved.
This program provides intense case management support services and is coordinated by a program manager that operates out of the NHS, St. Catharines site.
