Our Place, recognizing the need for chemical dependency treatment options for adults in Harrison County, Indiana recently began offering intensive outpatient as well as outpatient drug and alcohol programs for adults. This treatment program incorporates The Journey program incorporates "The Matrix Model" which is an evidence-based outpatient program that was developed through Hazelden.
The Matrix Model is a 16-week program which has 30 years of testing and outcomes. An explicit framework has been created by this program through regularly scheduled groups that address five core clinical areas: Individual/Conjoint Sessions Early Recovery Relapse Prevention Family Education Social Support Individual therapy sessions: These meetings focus on treatment planning and checking in to determine the person’s progress in the program. They may also involve family members or significant others.
Early recovery groups: Users who are in the first months of sobriety meet to learn tools for dealing with cravings and managing their time. They create a daily schedule and monitor their progress with support from other group members.
Relapse prevention groups: Users learn and share strategies for staying sober. These groups are very organized and include 32 different topics on preventing relapse, such as changing behaviors, altering patterns of thinking, and getting involved in 12-step groups.
Family education groups: These groups take place over the course of 10 weeks and teach the individual and family members about the biology of addiction, the health effects of drugs, stages of addiction, and effects of addiction on the family.
Social support groups: These groups occur in the last month of treatment. Users focus on finding drug-free activities and friends that do not use - and receives ongoing support from a peer recovery coach.
Twelve-step meetings: Part of the Matrix Model approach is introducing participants to the 12 steps and encouraging them to attend recovery support meetings throughout the program and as a part of their long term sobriety plan.
Additionally, the model incorporates several therapies, such as: Cognitive behavioral therapy: Also known as CBT, this therapy helps users understand how their thoughts influence their behaviors. They learn how to replace negative thoughts that can lead to self-destructive behaviors with positive ones that promote healthier behaviors.
Motivational interviewing: This counseling technique is used to help people with substance abuse problems overcome their resistance to quitting drugs and engaging in treatment. The therapist/client relationship is a partnership, wherein the therapist works with the recovering individual to identify their motivation to get clean and make positive changes in their life.
Contingency management: This treatment strategy rewards drug-free behaviors, such as attending treatment sessions, and withholds rewards or implements consequences for drug-using behaviors (e.g., failing a drug test or not taking prescribed medications). Matrix Model programs also perform drug tests randomly on a regular basis. Drug testing is used to keep users accountable and reward sobriety. It is not used to punish users. A positive drug test may indicate a need for increased structure in the program.
The staff involved in the Corydon Outpatient programs are certified and or licensed addiction and prevention professionals and are experienced working with adults and families. This program recognizes the challenges that adults experience in re-entering communities from incarceration, returning to a drug-free life and the challenges of staying drug-free for the future.
Men’s Non Violence: The BIP program is an evidence based program designed to help men charged with or convicted of violence against an intimate partner or related offense. It provides education to identify abusive behaviors, develop alternatives to violence, and explore the impact of violent or abusive behavior on intimate partners, children, and others.
Moving On (Women’s Non Violence): The MO program is an evidenced based program designed for women to address the risk factors that can lead to abuse and criminal behavior. It provides women with alternatives to criminal activity by helping identify and mobilize personal and community resources.
Matrix Adjustment Program (MAP): A cognitive behavioral treatment program that provides adults with the structure of an evidence-based treatment experience and combines education on both substance use and criminal thinking and behaviors. This program has been specifically adapted to meet the unique needs of law-involved clients and includes a focus on criminal thinking, re-entry, offender accountability and adjustment issues.
