Transitional Age Community Treatment Team

The Transitional Age Community Treatment (TACT) Program is an inter-disciplinary team of professionals that aid and prepare youth and young adults for community living. This program is a collaborative effort between Recovery Resources and the Alcohol, Drug Addiction & Mental Health Services Board.

The primary goal of the TACT Program is to transition youth from out of home placements for community integration and sustainability by reducing behavioral health symptoms with the outcome of preventing homelessness, avoiding or eliminating court involvement, and reducing admissions to Ohio Department of Youth Services’ (ODYS) correctional facilities. 

The Transitional Age Community Treatment (TACT) was developed due to the intensive needs of youth challenged with behavioral symptoms and/or complex issues that do not meet the admission criteria of the Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) Team but in need of a multidisciplinary approach for severe persistent behaviors.

The TACT program is supportive of our partnering systems that need additional support such as The Cuyahoga County Department of Children and Family Services (CCDCFS) and the Ohio Department of Youth Services (ODYS) as well as the community at large.
The TACT model will address basic supports such as housing sustainability, independent living skills, medication monitoring, social skill development, relationship enhancement, vocational skill building, and academic exploration.

Youth eligible for TACT are experiencing the following:
  • Severe Persistent Behaviors 
  • Socially Disruptive Behaviors 
  • Emerging Personality Disorder absent of bi-polar disorder, schizophrenia, schizo-affective disorder, depression recurrent 
  • Significant substance abuse greater than six months
