For persons requiring more intensive community based services, the agency offers three ACT-level teams.
ACT (Assertive Community Treatment) – In 1994, Community Support Services launched its first ACT team providing wrap-around services for persons with more intensive needs requiring frequent community contact to maintain stability. Persons referred to ACT typically have a history of multiple hospitalizations and crisis intervention visits.
ITT (Intensive Treatment Team) – The ITT team provides another option for wrap-around services. The ITT team works to assist young persons transitioning from the children’s mental health system to the adult system.
SAMI PACT – For persons with significant mental health and substance use concerns, the agency employs the principles of IDDT (Integrated Dual Diagnosis Treatment). This evidence-based practice employs motivational interviewing techniques and a stage of change model to provide community-based services to address the unique needs of persons with severe mental illness and significant substance use disorders.
