The Matrix Model

The Matrix model is a standard treatment plan for individuals addicted to stimulants such as cocaine, crystal meth or amphetamine-based prescription drugs. It was developed in the 1980s at an outpatient treatment center in Los Angeles called the Matrix Institute.

The model has been adapted to be presented individually either in person or via Telehealth for NDIS participants. This means that participants can progress through the Matrix Model at a pace they are comfortable with which has been seen to create a greater adherence to the program in comparison to other delivery methods. 

The program is intensive, it was originally designed to be presented daily over 16 weeks. Our adaption focuses on early recovery skills and allows for further engagement if the participant both wishes and is able to continue to program. We recommend a minimum of 8 sessions occurring in quick succession beginning at a time that is mutually agreed with the participant. If you are interested in this program please contact us at    

Housing Case Management

As qualified Social Workes we are able to liaise with Housing SA and private landlords to assist with the application and maintenance of housing. This includes completing applications, ensuring the participant has the highest level of priority available along with the appropriate reference letters along with repair and upkeep obligations. Please note that there is a long wait list for Government housing stock and we are unable to expediate an offer of housing from Housing SA.

This service can be billed under 08_005_01006_2_3 Improved Living Arrangements.
