About the Program: Telecare’s Integrated Services for Parolees programs are Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) programs for individuals who are on parole with serious mental illness. These programs exist to help people live successfully in the community and make strides toward their hopes and dreams and achieve their personal recovery goals, while avoiding a return to prison and unnecessary psychiatric hospitalization.
Building on traditional ACT standards, Telecare has created a recovery-centered experience for people served. Telecare’s approach is based on a belief that recovery can happen. Programs and staff strive to create an environment where a person can choose to recover. By connecting to each individual’s core self and trusting it to guide the way, it is possible to awaken the desire to embark on the recovery journey.
