Achievement through Counseling and Treatment (ACT)
Operating under the JEVS network, Achievement Through Counseling and Treatment (ACT) operates two outpatient, state-certified opioid treatment facilities in Philadelphia, known as ACT I and ACT II.
Both JEVS ACT locations offer personal solutions and supports to adults seeking medication-assisted treatment for opiate abuse, including outpatient methadone maintenance services, individual, group, and family counseling, free and confidential HIV/AIDS testing, and more. In addition, Act II also offers employment services including GED classes, resumé workshops, and job placement assistance.
From Addiction to Recovery
In 2010 the blank wall on the side of the ACT II building was transformed into an illustration of the path to recovery from addiction as part of Philadelphia's Mural Arts Program. (Animated gif courtesy of RJ Rushmore at Mural Arts Philadelphia)
“My life before coming to JEVS-ACT was drug infested, hopeless, suicidal. The program has helped me with the treatment to want to remain drug-free. ACT will save your life.”
- Michael, Fishtown
