ACT Spectrum Key Telecare STEPS (Striving Towards Enhanced Partnerships) Orange County is a 105-member Full Service Partnership (FSP) in Santa Ana, CA. Eighty clients are referred by residential/locked facilities and 25 clients are referred by the Mental Health Court treatment staff.

Services are provided by a multi-disciplinary team that includes a psychiatrist, a nurse, a team lead, a clinical director, personal service coordinators with experience in drug and alcohol and mental health treatment, and Specialists in housing, education and employment. Employees with lived experience of their own bring an added benefit to the work with members. A member council gives programmatic feedback and input. 

STEPS offers a low staff-to-client ratio and provides services both in the community and at our facility. Services are "wrapped" around the members based on their individual needs. Caseloads are shared among the clinicians in order that they know and work with all members. STEPS believes in a "whatever it takes approach" to support members in achieving their hopes and dreams.
