Community Addiction and Mental Health Services – 157 Duke Street

Flexible Assertive Community Treatment (F.A.C.T. Team) / Early Psychosis Program (E.P.P) / Supervised Community Care (S.C.C) 

F.A.C.T is a multi-disciplinary treatment team that provides care to adults living in the community who have been diagnosed with a serious mental illness. The goal of the treatment team is to increase the adults overall functioning due to the impacts of their severe mental illness. As such, the intensity of support and service is determined by each individual’s needs. Through this support, adults living with serious mental illness have fewer hospital admissions as their connection to community resources and agencies is strengthened.   

E.P.P. is a multi-disciplinary treatment team that provides care to those between the ages of 16 and 30, along with their families, who are experiencing and coping with a first episode of psychotic illness. Early intervention, rehabilitation, prevention of occurring/reoccurring setbacks, and reintegration before the illness has a significant impact. The team assists in identifying the signs of psychosis early so that supports and treatment can be provided as soon as possible. The program promotes wellness, reduces socially isolating behaviour, and attempts to quickly restore levels of functioning prior to the psychosis. 

S.C.C. is a program for adults living with diagnosed serious mental illness who have a court order to assist in compliance with treatment. The intent is to support adults through recovery prior to deterioration, which can result in hospitalization. Adults have an active role in guiding their treatment through choice, facilitated by their team of health-care providers in a familiar environment surrounded by formal and informal support systems. A patient advocate supports individuals through this process.
