Clinical Training on the Evidence-Based Matrix Model of Intensive Outpatient Treatment (Two Days)
What is the Matrix Model?
The Matrix Model is an effective protocol that has been used to treat thousands of methamphetamine, alcohol, and other substance abuse patients.
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.
Two-day Culturally Adapted Workshop
This includes a didactic overview of the elements that comprise the Matrix Model with an emphasis on topics specific to using the American Indian / Alaskan Native Matrix Manual client handouts. In consultation with Native American colleagues, we have created a set of materials that are more culturally relevant to a wide group of American Indian, Alaskan Native, and First Nation communities across the continent.
