Program For Assertive Community Treatment

Program for Assertive Community Treatment (PACT) is a team approach designed to provide comprehensive, community-based psychiatric treatment, medication management, rehabilitation, and support to individuals possessing a serious and persistent mental illness. A multi-disciplinary team of professionals, including a prescriber, team leader, social workers, a vocational specialist, a substance abuse specialist, and registered nurses provide these services. 

 The PACT team seeks to address all aspects of an individual's functioning and to help him/her nurture his/her life goals and integration into the community. In addition to possessing a serious and persistent mental illness, PACT clients have avoided or not responded well to traditional outpatient treatment and often have co-existing problems such as homelessness, substance abuse or criminal justice involvement.
