Assertive Community Treatment

Assertive Community Treatment

Volunteers of America, Utah's Assertive Community Treatment provides comprehensive, flexible treatment and support to individuals who live with serious mental illness.


Volunteers of America, Utah's Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) is a “hospital without walls” model. ACT uses a multidisciplinary team approach to provide intensive, integrated services where and when our clients need them—in their homes, at work and in other community settings. 

Volunteers of America, Utah's ACT Team members directly provide services that are individually tailored with each client and address their specific preferences and goals. The approach with each client emphasizes the relationship building and active involvement in assisting clients to make improvements in functioning, to better manage symptoms, to achieve individual goals and to maintain optimism. 

Payment Information

Clients must be insured through Medicaid to receive services from Volunteers of America, Utah's Assertive Community Treatment program.


Services are delivered and community-based (not office or facility-based) therefore ACT team members meet clients where needed.
