The New Mexico Solutions Assertive Community Treatment program is an intensive program that provides a high level of support and therapies to adults with chronic mental illness. Services are provided on a long-term basis with continuity of caregivers over time. Psychosocial services are provided for adults with severe and persistent mental illness who often have co-occurring problems, such as substance abuse, homelessness, or involvement with the judicial system.
Assertive outreach and engagement services are provided directly by ACT team members, in the environment of the person served. At least 75% of service contacts are in the community, outside of the clinical office setting. Multiple contacts can be made per week based on the clinical needs of the person served. Team members are on-call after business hours so crisis services are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
