PROGRAM: LOMPOC ASSERTIVE COMMUNITY TREATMENT (ACT) TEAM
Lompoc ACT is designed to engage with and provide services to adults with serious and persistent mental illness in the community where they live, instead of a hospital or clinical setting. Rather than brokering services, the Lompoc ACT team will provide treatment, support and rehabilitation services directly with a whatever it takes approach. The program provides a full range of services including assessment, individualized planning, personal service coordination, integrated co-occurring drug and alcohol services, medication support, counseling support, social skills development, supported housing, integrated vocational services, supported education and access on a 24/7, 365 day basis. The Personal Service Coordinator will be responsible for crisis care, case management service delivery, individual rehabilitation activities, day to day skills building, transportation to shopping and appointments and all other aspects required to help the consumer succeed. The Personal Service Coordinator will be part of an on-call coverage rotation for after-hours calls and may be required to transport consumers in his or her privately owned vehicle. More specifically, the Personal Service Coordinator has the case management skills and experience necessary to assess, plan, develop, coordinate and provide rehabilitation services to clients in this program under the direct and clinical supervision of the Team Leader and the psychiatrist. The Personal Service Coordinator functions as an integral member of the team and may at times be designated by the Team Leader to function as the lead coordinator/case manager. The Personal Service Coordinator is expected to supervise the general health, safety, and social rehabilitation of clients, as well as perform moderate facility maintenance, function as a positive role model, promote cooperation and harmony in communal living, and uphold and promote the program philosophy in all duties performed.
