The Matrix Model Certification Process is designed to identify those treatment programs that are implementing the Matrix Model with fidelity. The certification provides assurance that the program is, in fact, delivering the treatment as it was designed to be delivered for maximum effectiveness.
Matrix Institute on Addictions will provide certification to organizations that apply and meet the criteria. As part of this process, Matrix will also provide ongoing support, guidance and assistance in the effective implementation and utilization of the Matrix Model of Treatment. The goal is for the certified programs to form a supportive alliance where they can share information, innovations, support and encouragement for each other.
This alliance of certified, evidence-based programs will also provide fertile opportunities for research and development in the continuing evolution of the Matrix Model of Outpatient Treatment. For more information about how to obtain certification please contact Matrix Institute on Addictions: firstname.lastname@example.org
The following sites have achieved certification. They are recommended by Matrix Institute as programs that are delivering the Matrix Model with a high degree of fidelity.
