OVERVIEW

Abstract

Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) is a widely researched service delivery model for individuals with mental illness (and co-occurring substance abuse) who experience consistent, severe symptoms and who benefit from regular, intensive treatment from a multidisciplinary team of trained mental health professionals. Participants of this workshop will learn the Core processes involved in the operations of an ACT team.

The US Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), has defined recovery from both substance use disorders and mental disorders as “A process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, live a self-directed life, and strive to reach their full potential.” Recovery-oriented approaches offer a conceptual framework for transforming mental health and addiction treatment culture as well as direct care service provision. Recovery-oriented approaches challenge traditional notions of organizational priorities, professional power and acute care focus. It is a strengths based approach that shifts from a primary focus on symptom management toward one that emphasizes resilience and control over one’s life. This training will explore its application to ACT services and its implications in sustained recovery for ACT clients. 

Learning Objectives

Participants will be able to:

  • Define Recovery in terms of Mental Health and Substance Use.
  • Differentiate between Recovery Oriented Approach versus Medical Model Approach.
  • Identify the 6 main focus points of a recovery oriented approach to ACT services.
