Adult Assertive Community Treatment (ACT)

Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) is an intensive, comprehensive outpatient treatment and rehabilitative mental health services program for adults living in Hennepin County.


Clients may be referred to our programs and services by an insurance provider. Applicants with health coverage through a managed care organization must complete a chemical health assessment through their provider and obtain authorization prior to admission. A diagnostic assessment, discharge summaries from recent hospitalizations and/or previous psychiatric records are helpful to include with your referral.

Referrals can come from anyone even a self-referral as long as a client is Hennepin County of Financial Responsibility (CFR).
