Assertive Community Treatment – ACT

For some mentally ill individuals, simply coming to an AltaPointe facility for desperately needed treatment is impossible. These patients usually have been hospitalized multiple times, limited or no support system, inadequate basic living skills and persistent difficulty in illness and medication management. Other complicating factors may involve substance abuse problems and legal issues or other stresses that significantly impair their ability to maintain mental stability. These patients need intensive support from our ACT Team, a mobile, multi-disciplinary group of professionals who deliver the treatment and services needed in the manner and location that is most comfortable for the patient. The ACT Team’s mission is to improve the patient’s situation so that they can transition to a less intensive type of treatment.
