Assertive Community Treatment Team


Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) is an evidence-based treatment model providing multidisciplinary and comprehensive care to individuals experiencing severe and persistent mental illness who also experience co-occurring difficulties such as substance use, homelessness, legal involvement, medical problems, and other such high-risk complications. ACT works with a rehabilitative focus to restore the highest level of community functioning possible across multiple domains. ACT is delivered in the community, in people’s own homes and personal environments, where learning can be directly applied, and all services are assertive, so that individuals having difficulty engaging and participating with care can still receive support. Specialized services which are available from within the team include psychiatric medication management, nursing care, peer-based supports, substance use services, supported employment, and supported housing/tenancy support. The ACT team carries its own crisis phone, and services are available 24/7, 365 days a year.
