Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) is one of the oldest and most researched evidence-based practices (EBPs) for treating people with serious mental illness (SMI). It is used widely across the United States and internationally. ACT is a multidisciplinary, team-based service delivery model that provides time-unlimited, community-based services for individuals with SMI who experience or are at particular risk for concurrent substance abuse, frequent hospitalizations, homelessness, involvement with the criminal legal system, and psychiatric crises. The primary goal of ACT is to help individuals achieve recovery through community treatment, rehabilitation, and support.Maintaining Fidelity to ACT: Current Issues and Innovations in Implementation, Chapter 1.
