Motivational Interviewing For Substance Abuse Treatment

Substance abuse can lead to health problems, financial issues, failed relationships, and even legal troubles. But many people still have difficulty finding the right motivation to quit their addiction. All those negative consequences are outweighed by their apprehension about living without drugs and alcohol.

At Right Path Rehab, we have found that Motivational Interviewing (MI) can play a big role in helping you get past those fears and discover what will motivate you to embrace an addiction recovery program. We can incorporate MI into your individualized treatment plan to give you the greatest chance of achieving a successful recovery and long-term sobriety.

You may have lots of reasons for not being truly motivated to quit using drugs and alcohol. You may feel you are just not ready, or that your addiction problem is not really all that serious. Or it may even be because you fear the difficult process of going through rehab and dealing with withdrawal symptoms.

Through Motivational Interviewing, our trained counselors at Right Path Rehab encourage you to openly examine what is holding you back and limiting your motivation to quit. The aim is for us to help you make this discovery on your own through MI rather than our counselors telling you what you should do.

We’ve Helped Thousands of Individuals Overcome Drug and Alcohol Addiction

If you or a loved one are ready to overcome drug or alcohol abuse, our addiction specialists are here to guide you through every step. Many of our dedicated staff members are in long-term recovery themselves and understand firsthand the challenges of the recovery journey. This personal experience, combined with our professional expertise, allows us to offer compassionate, effective support tailored to your unique needs.

Why Motivational Interviewing Works

Once you find your true motivation, you are much more likely to stay on track in your journey toward recovery. When you make a decision to change based on your feelings and beliefs, and not because you feel guilty or because you are being pressured by your family or your therapist, it can significantly improve your chances of a successful recovery.

Motivational Interviewing can also be very helpful if you have been through a rehab program but have suffered a relapse. Your motivation to stay sober may have slipped as you return to the “real world” and all its potential stumbling blocks. At Right Path Rehab, our team can help you get back on track and avoid another relapse in the future.
