Adult Counseling and Therapy Program
Since 1978, the Adult Counseling & Therapy (ACT) Program has been offering hope, healing and support to those, 18 years and older, living with a mental illness. Our staff and quality of services provided is what sets us apart from other programs. Providing partial care services and treatment models that are proven to be successful, staff supports each adult to identify and remove any barriers they may be facing in life. Combining group and activity therapies in conjunction with individualized recovery plans, consumers have an opportunity to participate daily in a structured and comprehensive program.
The ACT Program is a caring place for adults to grow. Staff provide integrated, comprehensive care to each client. Our proven philosophy emphasizes the importance of utilizing individual strengths to improve social, occupational and educational functioning that is developmentally appropriate. The ACT Program allows all of the adults served to develop their own unique abilities at their own pace, providing individualized support to overcome obstacles obstructing functional skill improvement. Archway staff provides recovery focused services to educate about mental illness and develop the strengths and skills needed to manage them effectively. Our program features a variety of day-to-day activities, group therapies, community trips, special events, and holiday/dance parties. Each day, ACT Program consumers are cared for by dedicated, compassionate and highly qualified staff.
