Programs

Assertive Community Treatment (ACT)

When a person with a severe mental illness does not respond to traditional outpatient therapy an Assertive Community Treatment approach may be necessary to provide the best care.

The ACT programs are a team of professionals (psychiatrist, nurse, therapist and case manager) working together to assist individuals in developing the needed skills for a strong recovery.

Specialists are highly trained in substance abuse, mental health, and teaching vocational skills. Treatment typically occurs in the individual’s home or a local community setting, like a park or library. Clients are taught about their illness and work on ways to cope with the difficulties of severe mental disorders.
