Assertive Community Treatment (ACT)
The primary goal of Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) is to provide intensive and highly integrated services. The ACT program serves outpatient consumers whose symptoms of mental illness result in serious functioning difficulties in several major areas of life, often including work, social relationships, residential independence, money management, and physical health and wellness. The amount, scope, and expected duration of services are outlined in each consumer’s individual treatment plan.
Integrated Dual Diagnosis Treatment (IDDT)
We strive to improve the quality of life for people with co-occurring severe mental and substance use disorders by combining substance abuse services with mental health services.
Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT)
Offered at our Saginaw Enhanced Outpatient program, Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT) is a form of therapy that plays on the human-animal bond. In addition to the calming effect an animal can provide, certain activities can dramatically impact a person’s wellbeing when expertly coordinated. To learn more, click here.
Managing care is a collaborative process of assessment, planning, facilitation (linking and brokering), care coordination, evaluation, and advocacy for options and services. We are best able to meet an individual’s and family’s comprehensive health needs through communication and available resources. This is done to promote quality, cost-effective outcomes.
Crisis Residential Services
Crisis Residential Services are intended to provide a short-term alternative to inpatient psychiatric hospitalization for individuals experiencing an acute psychiatric crisis when clinically indicated. Services are designed for a subset of individuals who meet psychiatric inpatient admission criteria or are at risk of admission, but who can be appropriately served in settings less intensive than a hospital. The goal of Crisis Residential Services is to facilitate reduction in the intensity of those factors that lead to crisis residential admission through the person-centered and recovery/resilience oriented approach. Services are designed to resolve the immediate crisis and improve the functioning level of the individuals served to allow them to return to a less intensive community living as soon as possible. Group and individual treatment are provided by a comprehensive treatment team, including peer support specialists, social workers, nurses, and psychiatrists.

They are skilled in crisis intervention, clinical assessment addressing serious mental health issues, developing crisis safety plans to address risks and behaviors associated with mental health and substance use issues.
