Assertive Community Treatment

Assertive Community Treatment, also known as ACT, is an intensive community-based program designed to care for individuals experiencing serious mental health symptoms which interfere with their ability to live in the community, participate in treatment, and manage their health independently.  ACT provides comprehensive services, including therapy, case management, individual and group skills training, substance use disorder treatment, medication management, as well as access to our supported employment program, all from one team and with services predominately occurring in the community. 

Supported Employment Program

The supported employment program at Clatsop Behavioral Healthcare assists individuals living with severe mental health symptoms to enter the workforce and meet their vocational goals.  Employment specialists provide tailored training and resources which are used to match participants with job opportunities that coincide with a person’s goals and abilities.  The supported employment program does not give a person a job, but instead provides them with the support they need to accomplish their employment goals. 

Peer Support

The power of personal experience lies in the expertise and understanding which professional training simply can’t duplicate.  Clatsop Behavioral Healthcare’s peer support specialists utilize their own lived experience and specialized training to provide support and guidance to persons on their own path to wellness.  From defining goals and strategizing, to teaching new skills and providing support, our peers employ the tools gained through lived experience to help clients attain the same level of recovery from symptoms they themselves have achieved.  

We know some of the most challenging work a person will ever do is improving their own wellness.  With convenient locations in Astoria, Warrenton, and Seaside, our outpatient services are provided in a comfortable, private environment tailored specifically to help guide you along every step of your journey.
