In the present study, a cohort of patients discharged from two state psychiatric hospitals were categorized into three groups: psychiatric, psychiatric/substance abuse and substance abuse. Patterns of service receipt postdischarge and the differential impact of service use on rehospitalizations and community tenure were analyzed. The psychiatric group were more receptive to contacting community mental health aftercare agencies and when they did connect, they received, on the average, greater amounts of service than the other two groups.
