Running Time: varied
Backed by 20 years of research, no other evidence-based program intensive outpatient curriculum has proven so effective. While originally designed for treating meth addiction, it has also proven effecting in treatment of alcoholism, cocaine addiction and other substance abuse. It was recently tested in the CSAT Methamphetamine Project and is one of the few treatment programs to be endorsed by NIDA.*
With components similar to the adult package, this program addresses the needs of clients aged 12-24. It gives them knowledge and structure to evaluate their drug and alcohol use, move toward abstinence and sustain recovery.
The comprehensive, multiformat program covers six key clinical areas: individual/conjoint therapy, early recovery, relapse prevention, family education, social support, and urine testing.
The Matrix Model comes with a therapist’s manual, reproducible client handouts in print and on CD-ROM, 1,280 stickers for tracking alcohol- and drug-free days, a research CD, a 12-week family education component with lecture notes and handouts, and three DVDs – Road Map for Recovery, Triggers and Cravings, and Families in Recovery. All components except DVDs are packaged in a three-ring binder.
The Matrix Model for Adults, and The Matrix Model For Criminal Justice Settings are also available.
