Description:

A community living program reviewed the standard of mental health care, including rationales for psychopharmacological treatment, that community-based providers were delivering to fifty dually diagnosed individuals.

Subsequently, an innovative, agency-based interdisciplinary team designated to assume clinical responsibility for habilitative mental health care.
