89 Genesee Street | Rochester, NY 14611Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) is often referred to as our treatment without walls. It is a community-based program that delivers comprehensive services to individuals diagnosed with serious mental illness whose needs have not been met by traditional, office-based services. It is an effective, evidence-based program highly regulated by New York State. The program requires six contacts per month with each patient, five of which must be local and face-to-face. Participation is voluntary, although many of these arrangements are part of court-ordered Assisted Outpatient Treatment (AOT) and average a five-year length of stay with the goal of transitioning back to a traditional clinic setting.
ACT services are designed to help participants achieve and maintain life goals such as:
· Stable housing
· Symptom management
· Personal stability
· Improved health and wellness
· Reduction in medical and psychiatric hospitalizations
· Integration with the larger community
