Psychotic Disorders Division

Program of Assertive Community Treatment (PACT)

Where is PACT located?

The PACT program is based at McLean’s Belmont, Massachusetts campus. However, PACT is a community-based program, and care and services are delivered in the individual’s home or community, as appropriate.

Who benefits most from PACT?

PACT is designed to help adults with psychotic disorders such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, psychosis, and other related disorders. The program is aimed at individuals who need assistance in staying on track with their treatment or need help with skills for day to day living including vocational and rehabilitation skills.

Is family involved in treatment?

Family involvement is up to the individual. Family can be an integral part of one’s treatment and sustained recovery. With permission of the patient, we will include family members in treatment to the extent that it is clinically appropriate.

Is aftercare planning a part of the program?

The treatment team works closely with the individual as well as with family, significant friends, and outside providers to develop a personalized aftercare plan. Recommendations by staff are made based upon clinical needs, progress made during treatment, and long-term treatment goals.
