Our Services in North Carolina

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.
