  • Assertive Community Treatment

    Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) is an evidence-based practice that improves outcomes for people with severe mental illness who are most at-risk of homelessness, psychiatric crisis and hospitalization, and involvement in the criminal justice system. Our Center provides consulting, training, and evaluation to mental health organizations in Ohio and other states that provide ACT services, plan to implement ACT, and wish to integrate ACT with Integrated Dual Disorder Treatment (IDDT).
