What is Motivational Interviewing?

Motivational Interviewing focuses on resolving the mixed feelings a person has when dealing with addiction and helps them to focus on the motivational processes within each of us that facilitates change. In recent years the substance abuse community practiced a very aggressive and confrontational style of therapy. This therapy had the main goal of systematically breaking down the teen’s will. MI or motivational interviewing has replaced this approach with outstanding results.

The therapist and the youth work through problems together, as a team, to come up with the best possible solution for the problem at hand. The therapist is to provide encouragement and positive reinforcement in an environment that is conducive to positive change.
