Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) Teams
Need help immediately?
Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) is a team-based, person-centered service delivery model that supports people living with complex mental health or concurrent mental health and substance use disorders in their community.
What to expect
ACT is an evidence-based service delivery model that combines treatment, rehabilitation and support services using team-based care as a community alternative to psychiatric hospitalization. These teams provide intensive, specific and continuous services to meet the needs of individuals living with serious and persistent mental health and/or substance use challenges, who have not benefited from traditional outpatient programs.
