A number of second and third generation studies have shown that ACT programs have not achieved a similar degree of positive outcomes as the original PACT research. Typically lack of strong fidelity to the ACT model is the demonstrated contributor to poorer results. Therefore, this new version of the National Program Standards for ACT Teams not only provides minimum standards for program operation but it also provides brief descriptions of the rationale for many of the ACT requirements which have been difficult for providers and administrators to understand and implement. In addition, the ACT Standards have been modified to emphasize that ACT is a client-centered, recovery-oriented service delivery model. Client empowerment, involvement, and choice are fundamental to the principles and operation of individualized, collaborative, and effective ACT service delivery. (Authors)
