SAMHSA: Maintaining Fidelity to ACT - Current Issues and Innovations in Implementation
SAMHSA has issued a new practical guide on Maintaining Fidelity to ACT: Current Issues and Innovations in Implementation. To support continued efficacy of Assertive Community Treatment (ACT), it is critical to reaffirm its fundamentals and promote awareness of new developments relevant to implementation of the model. Serving as a follow-up and companion product to SAMHSA’s Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) Evidence-Based Practices (EBP) KIT, this product reviews the principles of ACT; summarizes contemporary issues impacting ACT teams; and examines aspects of ACT implementation and outcomes when teams extend the model to specific target populations and settings. The goal of this guide is to support effective implementation of ACT by reaffirming fundamentals of the model and highlighting new developments.
