ACT is a multi-disciplinary team offering treatment, rehabilitation, and support services using a person-centered, recovery-based approach to individuals that have been diagnosed with a persistent mental illness. Priority is given to individuals with schizophrenia, other psychotic disorders (e.g., schizoaffective disorder), bipolar disorder, or major/chronic depression, as these illnesses more frequently cause long-term psychiatric disability. Priority is also given to individuals with continuously high service needs that are not being met in more traditional site-based service settings.
The services provided by ACT include a full range of clinical treatment and care, psychosocial rehabilitation, care coordination, and community support services designed to promote recovery by improving psychiatric symptoms, preventing relapse, reducing substance use, teaching skills, providing direct assistance, and securing community resources necessary for successful overall functioning in work, school, community, home, and social relationships.
ACT is a Medicaid based program working with patients 18 years and older. All referrals are submitted through SPOA.
