Assertive Community Treatment (ACT)
When you need individual, intensive, integrated services for persistent mental illness, our Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) team is here for you.
Our multi-disciplinary staff is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
We provide these services primarily in the community and not in an office setting. Our team uses assertive interventions, including street outreach, as appropriate. We average a minimum of three face-to-face contacts each week.
You'll be a partner with a team that includes registered nurses, a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner (PMHNP), alcohol and drug counselors, a clinical professional counselor and case managers.
ACT is a MaineGeneral Community Care program.
