The Matrix Model is clinical training on the Evidence-Based Matrix Model of Intensive Outpatient Treatment. It is an effective protocol that has been used to treat thousands of methamphetamine, alcohol, and other substance abusing patients.
Matrix Institute on Addictions is nationally and internationally recognized for its structured, evidence-based outpatient treatment approach known as the Matrix Model. Training is appropriate for health care professionals, substance abuse treatment programs, mental health organizations, law enforcement agencies, judges, and medical facilities. All Matrix trainers have extensive clinical experience delivering and supervising the Matrix Model.
Why it Works
The Matrix Model has been refined over a 25 year period. It is an easy-to-use manualized program that integrates cognitive behavioral therapy, contingency management, motivational interviewing, 12-step facilitation, family involvement, and other elements to give patients the skills and understanding they need to overcome addiction.
This includes a didactic overview of the Matrix Model and experiential exercises. There will be special emphasis on familiarizing the audience with the most recent findings regarding psycho-social interventions that have proven useful in treating substance abuse.
Training is based on the Matrix Manual of Intensive Outpatient Alcohol & Drug Treatment.
“Research studies indicate that the Matrix Model is very effective in treating various addictions, including methamphetamine.”
