Abstract

Assertive community treatment (ACT) is a complex community-based service approach to helping people with severe mental disorders live successfully in the community. Effective replication of the model and research on critical elements require explicit criteria and measurement. A measure of program fidelity to ACT and the results of its application to fifty diverse programs are presented.
