The authors examine whether Assertive Community Treatment (ACT), a widely implemented and rigorously studied practice, can successfully incorporate a recovery oriented approach while continuing to retain program fidelity. The authors briefly review the effectiveness of ACT as an evidence-based practice, with a focus on adaptations to changing populations and contexts. The authors explore philosophical similarities and differences between ACT and recovery and examine how fidelity standards, a widely used indicator of how ACT teams operate, support or interfere with the adoption of a recovery-oriented practice. Finally, the authors provide recommendations on how best to incorporate a recovery orientation into existing ACT teams. (authors)
