The Matrix Model: Intensive Outpatient Alcohol & Drug Treatment Program – Revised and Expanded; Updated to Meet DSM-5 Classifications
The revised and expanded Matrix Model is an evidence-based intensive outpatient program that is backed by over twenty years of research providing your adult clients with the structure of an inpatient treatment experience on an outpatient timetable. It includes the latest information and statistics, including information on medication-assisted treatment, and meets DSM-5 classifications. Comprehensive as well as intensive, the Matrix Model covers individual/conjoint therapy, early recovery skills, relapse prevention, family education, social support, and drug screening strategies, with participation in a Twelve Step program encouraged throughout. The manualized format allows clients across your facility to use the same materials–giving you a standardized tool for measuring outcomes.

Although the program can be completed in a 16-week time frame, the Matrix Model can be extended up to 12 months through continuing care and aftercare.

The Matrix Model includes


  • A therapist’s manual with a complete research bibliography on CD-ROM
  • Reproducible worksheets and handouts on an additional CD-ROM
  • Three lecture videos
  • Medallions to commemorate successful program completion
  • Calendar stickers to help clients track their sobriety
