ACT (Assertive Community Treatment)

ACT (Assertive Community Treatment) is a program designed to help individuals with a Severe Mental Illness who are experiencing repeated homelessness, incarceration and/or institutionalization, and who need more than traditional outpatient services. The ACT team comes directly to the client, whether it is in the client’s home, place of work or another place in the community. Services are flexible and available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. An individual works with the entire team — including a nurse, psychiatrist, social worker and case manager — on a schedule that meets his or her needs.

Customer Care Call Center

The Customer Care and Crisis Call Center assists individuals in locating and obtaining needed behavioral health services by selecting resources most appropriate for their needs. All initial appointments are set through the Customer Care staff. Additionally, the team serves as a resource for the public through provision of information regarding behavioral health services. The Customer Care Call Center can be reached at (888) 291-4357.

Through Forensic Evaluation services, Centerstone performs competency and mental condition evaluations at the request of courts.

Consultation and Evaluation Services
