Clients who were high service users with serious mental disorders were randomly assigned to assertive community treatment (ACT) or to standard case management (SCM) at three sites and followed for 18 months.
Clients in ACT spent more days in the community than did those in SCM, at no additional cost.
For clients who were hospitalized at study entry, assertive community treatment was more cost-effective than standard case management.
