Assertive Community Treatment (ACT)
ACT is a mental health service-delivery model. The main goal of ACT is to help people recover through community treatment. It is made up of a team of different professionals who work closely together to provide assistance and treatment to meet peoples’ needs. ACT team members go into the community and peoples’ homes to provide services, such as treatment, rehabilitation, and case management. The ACT program is unique in that any member of the team can see any client, treatment is flexible and specific to the clients’ needs at the time, all mental health services are provided through the ACT team, and are provided for as long as needed.

Psychiatric Medication Management
Medical services are provided under the general medical supervision of the Chief Medical Officer. Medical staff provide psychiatric consultation to staff, case conferences, psychiatric diagnostic evaluations, medication management and prescriptions.

Medication evaluation and monitoring services may be provided in conjunction with psychotherapy or may stand alone if the client is stable and not needing ongoing psychotherapy services. Medical staff prescribe only medications to address psychiatric symptoms/illnesses. The use of medications is not a prerequisite for services and clients will not be denied access to other services as a result of their reluctance to use medications.
