Motivational Interviewing

Embrace treatment and change your lifestyle. Motivational Interviewing is a proven strategy used to treat addiction by empowering patients to accept recovery and take control of their lives. Motivational Interviewing can help people accept treatment, and reflect on how it has affected their lives. Because individuals make choices on their own during therapeutic sessions, they are deciding to change behaviors and are more likely to stick with them.

A person’s desire to recover will ultimately determine how effective addiction treatment is. Motivational Interviewing focuses on attitudes and empowers people who suffer from substance abuse to make positive changes.

Build Motivation for Treatment.

Motivational Interviewing may be used in conjunction with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), though it is a very different approach because CBT does not address the underlying causes of substance abuse and is less rooted in problem-solving. Motivational Interviewing resolves a person’s conflicting emotions about substance abuse, addressing ambivalence head-on. And, we know that ambivalence is a barrier to recovery.

A Collaborative Process

Addiction counseling using Motivational Interviewing is a collaborative process where a trained therapist provides a supportive environment, so an individual feels open to expressing emotions, attitudes and opinions. The therapist and person struggling with substance abuse identify discrepancies between goals and current behavior. The therapist works to understand the individual’s motivations, listens with empathy and empowers him or her to choose the right path.

Effective for Treating Addiction

The National Institute on Drug Abuse and Substance Abuse and the Mental Health Services Administration identify Motivational Interviewing as an effective approach to help rehabilitate from substance use disorders. Often, Motivational Interviewing is used in conjunction with other treatment, including individual, group and family therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT).

Motivational Interviewing—Stages of Change

No one likes being told how they feel, and for a person struggling with addiction, gaining the ability to recognize the behavior and desire a change is critical to successful recovery. Motivational Interviewing helps individuals take responsibility for their actions, and to feel in control of their addiction treatment because of the “stages of change.”

Pre-contemplation: A denial stage where someone struggling from substance abuse does not recognize the problem. Or, if a problem is admitted, there is a resistance to treatment.

Contemplation: A person recognizes addiction is a problem but is not confident that treatment will work.

Preparation: The individual and counselor set achievable goals and identify lifestyle changes. The key is to work in small steps that allow the person dealing with addiction to realize success.

Action: Here, an individual is committed to recovery and managing behaviors. This can include outpatient treatment, continuing individual, group or family therapy, or attending support meetings that reinforce a healthy lifestyle.

Maintenance: During this stage, a person is making healthy decisions and has a support system to continue on that path for the long-term.
