Matrix Model Basic Training
Clinical Training on the Evidence-Based Matrix Model of Intensive Outpatient Treatment
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 abusing 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.
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.
