Crisis Residential Facilities Cheaper, More Effective, than Psychiatric Hospitals

A Medical News Today article describes how "...the [new] study's authors found that participants in a consumer-managed crisis residential program (CRP) experienced significantly greater improvement on several interviewer-rated and self-reported psychopathology measures than did participants assigned to a locked, inpatient psychiatric facility (LIPF). They also found that service satisfaction was dramatically higher among patients at the CRP."
