At Ashcliffe Psychology, we are passionate about supporting people to help overcome unhelpful thinking and unhealthy cognitive patterns or behaviours, such as addiction.
This is why we offer the Matrix Program in Perth – an intensive non-residential treatment program for addiction. The Matrix Program has been adapted from The Matrix Model which is a combination of evidence-based interventions to support and assist individuals in recovery from addiction to methamphetamine, ICE, cocaine, alcohol, cannabis, prescription medication and similar substances.
Ashcliffe Psychology Directors Kerryn Ashford-Hatherly and Michael Tunnecliffe have both been trained to Supervisor level at the Matrix Institute in the United States. For anyone looking to address their substance abuse and addictive behaviours in Perth, our clinic may be able to help.
The Matrix Program is not for everyone. It asks a lot from participants, and as such our facilitators and lived experience mentor are all incredibly supportive. The Matrix Program sits in between residential treatment and regular counselling. For people who need more than regular counselling but due to work and family commitments cannot commit to residential treatment, then Matrix Program may be of benefit.
The Matrix Program includes psycho-education, cognitive behaviour therapy, motivational interviewing, schema therapy, family and friends education evenings and contingency management.
