Transferring clients from intensive case management : Impact on client functioning : A Research Network to Evaluate Assertive Community Treatment.
The effects of transferring clients from assertive community treatment to a less intensive (step-down) case management program were examined.
Service use decreased significantly after transfer to the step-down program, and no negative effects of transfer on hospital use or client functioning were evident.
Critical elements for successful step-down are suggested and discussed.
