MATRIX model of drug and alcohol abuse and treatment

The Matrix Model Intensive Outpatient Treatment Program includes several key components that complement each other and combine to produce an integrated outpatient treatment experience that works. Critical elements of the program include:

  • Early Recovery Groups
  • Relapse Prevention Groups
  • Family Education Groups
  • Individual Sessions
  • Social Support Groups
  • 12-Step Meetings

Moreover, the program is characterized by a positive, collaborative and mutually respectful relationship between the patient and therapist that contributes greatly to our high rates of sobriety.

Among its many accolades, the Matrix Model has been acknowledged by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) as an effective and scientifically based approach. In addiction, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) has listed the model on its National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP). This prestigious listing was based on the cumulative data from evaluations of the Matrix Model spanning the past 30 years.

For a more detailed description of the Matrix Model please download the Matrix Model Whitepaper

Matrix Institute on Addictions is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) and is a member of the National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers (NAATP).
