Community Partnership Care Coordination’s Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) teams are a critical part of our Home and Community Based Services Program.
ACT is an evidence-based model designed to provide treatment, rehabilitation and support services to individuals diagnosed with a serious mental illness (SMI) and whose needs go beyond traditional mental health services.
The ACT model involves intensified, mobile treatment services in the community/home to promote successful and frequent engagement in services.. Services are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. The resulting engagement also aims to reduce hospitalizations, incarcerations, unemployment and homelessness.
All ACT services are delivered using a multi-disciplinary team approach to address the complex needs of an acute subgroup of the SMI population, including individuals with co-occurring substance use disorders.
ACT works primarily with SMI members who have diagnoses including but not limited to schizophrenia, schizo-affective disorder, bipolar disorder, and co-occurring substance use disorders. The program is not limited to these populations, and may also include individuals with diagnoses of depression, anxiety and mood-related disorders.
Referrals to CPCC’s ACT Teams must be generated from a designated intake agency through Cenpatico Integrated Care (the Regional Behavioral Health Authority). The individual must be actively enrolled with Cenpatico in order to be referred for these services, and be designated as an SMI Title-XIX AHCCCS-enrolled member.
If you are interested in the ACT program or are a provider and would like to refer a member for consideration, please contact CPCC at (520) 901-4701 or 4702.
