Assessment and Evaluation

How does this factor into addiction care? For any individual to pursue lifelong recovery, proper motivation is of the essence, and lack of it is an almost insurmountable hurdle to health and wholeness. Motivational interviewing ignites that sense of drive and purpose in clients who have none.

It takes the form of a friendly, collaborative effort between client and therapist. It’s not a confrontation; rather, it’s about working together to overcome ambivalence and understand how the right choices can lead to a lifetime of freedom from addiction.

Through motivational interviewing, the therapist seeks to move the client toward a place of autonomy—a place where he or she can claim responsibility over their own sobriety, and move forward with wise, purposeful decision-making.

During the process, the client may engage in affirmations, reflections, and a frank discussion of actions and consequences. Again, it is never about antipathy; it’s about cooperating and moving toward a place of motivation and healing.
