Motivational Interviewing

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a client-centered therapy approach that focuses on increasing an individual’s motivation and readiness for change. It involves a collaborative conversation between the therapist and the individual, where the therapist helps the individual identify their goals and reasons for wanting to make a change in their behavior. MI is often used in outpatient programs for individuals struggling with substance use disorder to help them overcome their ambivalence and resistance towards treatment. At Breakthrough Recovery, our therapists use MI techniques to build rapport with individuals and support them in finding their own motivation for recovery.

What is Motivational Interviewing?

Motivational interviewing (MI) is a form of therapy that focuses on helping individuals find the motivation and desire to make positive changes in their lives. It is a client-centered approach that involves guiding individuals towards discovering their own internal motivation for change rather than imposing it upon them.

In an outpatient setting, MI may involve individual therapy sessions where a therapist works with the individual to explore their goals, values, and motivations for making a change. The therapist then helps the individual identify potential barriers to change and develop strategies for overcoming them. At Breakthrough Recovery, we use MI in conjunction with other evidence-based therapies to help individuals overcome addiction and achieve their goals for recovery.

How Does Motivational Interviewing Help?

Motivational interviewing (MI) can help individuals make positive changes in their lives by addressing their ambivalence and resistance towards change. By providing a safe and non-judgmental space for individuals to explore their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, MI helps individuals gain a deeper understanding of themselves and their motivations for change.

Through this process, they can develop the confidence and motivation to make meaningful changes in their lives. MI also focuses on developing a strong therapeutic relationship between the therapist and the individual, which can increase trust and collaboration in the recovery process. At Breakthrough Recovery, we utilize MI as part of our comprehensive care approach to help individuals overcome addiction and achieve long-term recovery.
