Assertive Community Treatment:
A Team Approach to Community-based Care

At our Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) program, we are here to support you in taking positive steps towards independent living. We believe recovery is possible with the right plan and support in place.

Our job is to do whatever it takes to support you in your recovery journey where you live, work and recreate. Our multidisciplinary team includes a psychiatrist, a nurse, a team lead, case managers, substance use disorder counselors, peer support specialists, and employment specialist, who are all here to help you on your path.

We connect you to the proper resources so you can achieve your goals. We will work with your identified support network, such as family, friends and community to take steps towards making recovery happen.

Our program is based on an evidenced-based national model that helps individuals live independent lives and focuses on a strength-based approach to recovery.

What to Expect

Your support services start with your hopes and dreams. Our staff uses recovery dialogues to encourage you to think about what you want in life and develop individualized recovery plans to guide your work in the program. We can work with you where you feel most comfortable at our office, in your home, or at the peer-center.

Our culture is based on recovery. We believe in respect and non-judgment, and we celebrate individual uniqueness. We care about the interpersonal relationships we develop so we can foster a supportive program setting.

Our staff are passionate, resourceful, and motivated. We are your partners in recovery, and will be with you throughout your journey.

Our goal is to help you thrive in your community. We want you to be the leader of your recovery journey and to create the life you want for yourself and to feel a part of your community.
