Assisted Outpatient Treatment Services
A Program for Court Ordered Services
Assisted Outpatient Treatment Services (AOTS) at CarePlus is a program designed to engage individuals age 18 years or older and living in Bergen County – who have been court ordered to treatment within the community – in a mental health care and wellness program that provides a pathway to recovery.
CarePlus AOTS delivers community-based mental health services under court order to individuals with severe and persistent mental illness, who have demonstrated difficulty adhering to treatment. As a result of their mental health issues, they present as a danger to themselves, others or property, yet have a history of responding positively to outpatient treatment. AOTS will provide access to treatment and support services, and intensive intervention treatment and case management services will be offered in an effort to sustain the individual within the community.
