Assertive Community Treatment (ACT)
Mobile multi-disciplinary teams provide intensive treatment, rehabilitation, and supportive services for individuals experiencing multiple life challenges, such as homelessness, unemployment, addictive disorders, legal involvement, and/or significant medical conditions. ACT uses a team approach to give consumers ongoing individualized care in their homes, where they work, and in other settings in the community where support is needed. The goal of an ACT team is to reduce the amount of time spent in institutional settings and to help individuals become more integrated within their community.
