Intensive Community-Based Services

Are you often in crisis?
Do you need services that come to you in your home and community?

The following services help you access the services and gain the skills you need to stay out of the hospital and thrive in the community.
 

Assertive Community Treatment Team (ACT)

Referred to as a “hospital without walls,” the ACT Team provides treatment services in the community on a 24/7 basis.  ACT uses a team of professionals from various backgrounds to treat the whole person with medication, therapy, case management, employment readiness, education, skill-building, crisis intervention, and case management. ACT services are aimed at adults with mental illness (who might also have a co-occurring addiction) who frequently are in crisis, often needing hospitalization. These services are for clients whose mental illness impacts other areas such as hygiene; meeting nutritional needs; caring for business affairs; obtaining medical, legal, and housing services; recognizing common danger or hazards to oneself; failure to perform daily living tasks without support from others; inability to carry out homemaker roles and maintaining a safe living situation.

ACT Services are available to residents of Barrow, Clarke, Jackson, and Walton Counties.
