Assertive Continuing Care (ACC) uses Community Reinforcement Approach (CRA) procedures, home visits, and case management for individuals following an initial substance use treatment episode. It stresses rapid initiation of services after discharge from residential, intensive outpatient, or regular outpatient treatment in order to promote recovery and prevent relapse.
Clinicians and clinical supervisors attend the initial A-CRA/CRA training. Shortly after the initial training, clinicians and clinical supervisors take a series of online ACC courses, which include rapid linkage procedures, home visits and safety, and case management activities.
