Nadia Matta received her Master of Social Work degree from The University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. During her first semester, she became one of 60 students nationally to receive a full scholarship from the Obama administration for students learning clinical social work.
Her graduate school internship and first post-graduate job were working with the Native American community in Detroit, where clients were given funding for substance use treatment through a program called Access to Recovery. She provided therapy to clients and assisted with placement at inpatient centers while continuing ongoing care throughout their inpatient stay and afterward.
