The Matrix Model is an easy-to-use manualized treatment protocol that gives patients the skills and understanding they need to overcome addiction. It has been refined over the past 30 years to integrate cognitive behavioral therapy, contingency management, motivational interviewing, 12 Steps facilitation, family involvement, and other elements to successfully treat individuals struggling with substance use.

The Matrix Model is acknowledged by the National Institute on Drug Abuse as an effective and scientifically-based approach. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration lists the model on its National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices. The Matrix Model also was listed as a recommended evidence-based treatment model in Facing Addiction in America: The Surgeon General’s Report on Alcohol, Drugs and Health, a 2016 report released by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of the Surgeon General.
