The Mile High Continuing Care
Intensive Outpatient Treatment
The Matrix Model
In the 1980’s, with the rampant increase in the availability of cocaine and methamphetamine abuse became a scourge across the country. A new type of treatment model was needed and developed.
This treatment model has been well researched and proven to be a successful and effective treatment approach concerning intensive out-patient therapy and support for most substance use disorders.
At the Matrix Institute, they drew from numerous treatment approaches, incorporating into their model methods that were thoroughly tested and practical in application.
Here at Mile High we utilize and incorporate the Matrix Model into our Intensive Out-Patient program.
The Mile High Model
The Mile High IOP Model integrates elements of:
Relapse prevention is an important component of treatment.
Focuses on the development of personal coping strategies.
Improves family well-being, lower relapse rates, and improves recovery.
Families play a very positive role in recovery success.
Engage recovery support systems and resources
Our Mile High Matrix IOP groups are all inclusive and open ended.
New clients may begin the group at any point in the schedule. They also will transition from the group after completion of the full IOP recovery series.
Because our Mile High Continuing Care Groups are open ended, the content of sessions flow from one to the next without dependence on the previous sessions.
Our clients that are in early recovery from substance use disorder will be experiencing some degree of cognitive impairment. Most will have impaired short-term memory.
Repetition of the required course information in different ways, in different group contexts, and over the course of clients’ time with us is very helpful.
It will help them with their comprehension, as well as, their retention of concepts. This helps people retain the basic concepts and life skills that we teach and give guidance.
They are critical to success in recovery.
