In the Czech Republic, Forensic Treatment (FT) services consist of inpatient protective treatment (PT), outpatients treatment and secure detention (SD). Currently, there are 13 facilities providing inpatient PT; 386 clinics providing outpatient treatment and 2 SD. 950 patients receive inpatient and 2,300 outpatient treatment. 85 patients are currently in SD. Czech psychiatric care reform aims to separate the inpatient care from the rest of psychiatric care as well as create Protective Multidisciplinary Teams and services for minority populations. The whole system of care needs to implement risk assessment and adjust recovery management plans to indicated risks.
