American Psychiatric Press, 1995 - Medical - 259 pages
Because of the increased focus on managed care there is a growing demand for alternatives to psychiatric hospital treatment. In Alternatives to the Hospital for Acute Psychiatric Care, a range of acute nonhospital treatment programs from the United states and abroad are described, including locked- and open-door, voluntary and involuntary, public and private, and nontraditional and strictly medical settings.
Alternatives to the Hospital for Acute Psychiatric Care describes various cost-effective alternatives to psychiatric hospital care and provides specific details for mental health administrators to evaluate the usefulness and feasibility of the various models for their own mental health care setting.
