This is a study of two strategies of case management-Community Treatment Teams (CTTs) and Intensive Case Management Teams (ICMTs). A random sample of 30 cases from the CTT group were matched with 30 cases from the ICMT group using 4 criteria. Data were collected from case records and verified with case managers. The analysis revealed that although the CTTS engaged in more case management activities, there were few significant differences in the outcomes of the two approaches. The results are discussed in relation to a possible "ceiling effect" of case management, cost effectiveness, and limitations in the sample.
