November 17, 2014 — Free Executive Web Briefing

This event has passed. Slides and video from this event can be found here.

Addictive disorders affect millions of individuals each year, but only a small percentage of these individuals receive treatment for their substance dependence or abuse. With the expansion of health care coverage to millions of Americans and parity benefits for mental health and addictive disorders, there are new consumer populations to serve who are covered by a range of new payers. But with this new opportunity comes the question of both clinical best practices and reimbursement.

To learn more about state-of- the-art intensive outpatient programs for treating addictive disorders, join Dr. Jeremy Martinez, Executive Director of the Matrix Institute on Addictions, for an in-depth profile of his program, the evidence-based Matrix Model of Intensive Outpatient Treatment and the values, benefits, and best practices of intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) like the Matrix Model. This free web briefing, scheduled for November 17, 2014 at 2:00 PM EST, is sponsored by OPEN MINDS, the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation, and the Matrix Institute on Addictions.

The Matrix Model of Intensive Outpatient Treatment program is a proven model for the treatment of substance use disorders that has been supported by 30 years of evaluation and research. During this special online event, discover more about the Matrix Model as an evidence-based model and hear Dr. Martinez discuss how medication assisted treatment (MAT) can be used in an intensive outpatient treatment plan. Attendees will also discover how to structure a sound IOP while learning about funding opportunities for IOP services.

  • Describe the Matrix Model of Intensive Outpatient treatment

  • Apply the framework for a sound intensive outpatient service plan
  • Illustrate how Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) can be used in an intensive outpatient treatment plan
