Community Treatment Order (CTO)
A community treatment order is an alternative form of treatment for people with serious mental illness. It is funded though the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care and is sponsored by Southlake Regional Health Centre. This form of treatment allows the patient to continue living in the community while receiving support and treatment specified in a plan that the client, family and clinicians prepare together. The focus of the Community Treatment Order is to keep the individual in the community and reduce the amount of time he/she spends at the Hospital. The CTO coordinator receives referrals both from within the community and from the Hospital.

Recovery and Wellness Day program
The Recovery and Wellness Day Program is one of several mental health services offered at Southlake on an out-patient basis. In group settings, clients rediscover their strengths and learn to build healthy coping skills. They learn to set goals, problem solve, manage stress, and how to access community resources. Participation in group sessions enables clients to realize that people share similar problems and are able to help each other understand and find solutions to those problems.

The recovery program is focused on clients who are just starting treatments and require a more supportive atmosphere, whereas the wellness program is aimed at clients who are ready to move forward in their treatments.
