  Please Note:


Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) is a widely researched service-delivery model for individuals with severe and persistent mental illness, and co-occurring substance use disorders. ACT clients benefit from individualized and comprehensive care from a multidisciplinary team of trained mental health professionals delivered in the home or other community settings. ACT’s recovery-oriented services are targeted to those who exhibit the most severe mental health and substance abuse symptoms. These individuals have significant social functioning challenges and needs not well met by a traditional service delivery approach. Staff working on ACT teams require consistent, high quality supervision that addresses both mental health and co-occurring substance use disorders in the context of the full ACT Model.


The Dartmouth Assertive Community Treatment Scale (DACTS fidelity scale) helps organizations implement and assess treatment reliability to the evidence-based practice of ACT. The DACTS fidelity scale explicitly operationalizes the critical ingredients of the ACT Model using both quantitative and qualitative measures to inhibit drift from the model and provide consistency in implementation. The results of the DACTS fidelity reviews can be utilized by the supervisor with team staff and other key organizational leadership to plan for program improvements. Part III of III of ACT Fidelity using the DACTS will explore the scale’s Nature of Services program criteria for fidelity to ACT. Training participants will be able to utilize the DACTS scale to evaluate how consistently the ACT team operates with fidelity to the ACT Model.
