The Program for Assertive Community Treatment (PACT) is a team-based program for individuals with serious and persistent mental illness and substance use disorders who have a history of multiple emergency room visits or psychiatric hospital admissions in the last 18 months.
CPC's PACT Teams include a psychiatrist, nurses, clinical social workers, co-occurring specialists, vocational specialists, mental health advocates and peer specialists. The PACT Teams provide intensive, in-community treatment and support to assist consumers in staying out of the hospital and improving their functioning in the community.
The PACT Team treats adult consumers throughout Monmouth County. Referrals for PACT services can be made directly to the PACT program and must be approved by DMHAS (the Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services).
