What Is Motivational Interviewing?

Motivational interviewing is a therapeutic technique that helps individuals find their intrinsic motivation to change behaviors that are not serving them well. This patient-centered counseling style fosters change by helping patients explore and resolve ambivalence about their substance use.

How Motivational Interviewing for Addiction Works

During MI sessions, therapists use open-ended questions, affirmations, reflective listening, and summarizing to encourage individuals to explore their reasons for change. Through these techniques, therapists can help patients identify their own personal motivations and values that can guide them toward recovery.

When you talk with a therapist during an MI session, you might experience:

  • A sense of empathy and understanding from your therapist
  • A safe space to openly discuss your feelings and thoughts about addiction
  • Collaboration with your therapist to set achievable goals for recovery
  • An exploration of your own personal motivations and values
  • A focus on positive, achievable changes rather than dwelling on past mistakes

Motivational interviewing has been shown to be effective in helping individuals overcome addiction and maintain long-term recovery. Since you’re empowered to identify and commit to your own goals for change, you can connect with your inner motivation and make positive changes that align with your personal values.
