Matrix Counselor Manual
Course Description: The Matrix Intensive Outpatient Treatment for People With Stimulant Use Disorders (IOP) Package provides a structured approach for treating adults who abuse or are dependent on stimulant drugs. The approach followed in the treatment package was developed by the Matrix Institute in Los Angeles, California, and was adapted for this treatment package by the Knowledge Application Program of the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
The Matrix IOP model and this treatment package based on that model grew from a need for structured, evidence-based treatment for clients who abuse or are dependent on stimulant drugs, particularly methamphetamine and cocaine. This comprehensive package provides substance abuse treatment professionals with an intensive outpatient treatment model for these clients and their families: 16 weeks of structured programming and 36 weeks of continuing care.
Psychologists, social workers, mental health counselors and marriage and family therapists can benefit from this course. This course is appropriate for beginning and intermediate level practitioners who wish to learn more about legal and ethical issues in screening older adults for substance abuse issues and problems.
Learning Objectives: This course will provide the practitioner with detailed information regarding the implementation of the Matrix model for the treatment of substance abuse. Specifically, a professional will:
- Describe the Matrix IOP approach and the role of the counselor within this approach
- Identify the role of drug testing and procedures within the Matrix IOP approach
- Describe the procedures and interventions utilized in individual and conjoint sessions within the Matrix IOP approach
