Motivational Interviewing

Motivational Interviewing at Banyan Boca

Addiction recovery can be a difficult and discouraging process for many people. It’s not uncommon for individuals who are recovering from drug or alcohol abuse to struggle with addiction cravings, temptations, withdrawals, and tough emotions. For some, staying motivated and building self-esteem in addiction recovery can be a challenge. If you or a loved one can relate, then motivational interviewing therapy can help.

What Is Motivational Interviewing?

Motivational interviewing is a counseling technique that focuses on encouraging patients and building their motivation to receive therapy and treatment for their addiction. When you come across a bump in the road that seems more like an immovable wall, it’s easy to feel discouraged. That’s where motivational interviewing comes in. During motivational interviewing for addiction, patients will have individual sessions with a therapist to discuss the individual’s behavioral practices, struggles, and reasons for seeking therapy. Patients are often hesitant to divulge personal details about their addiction, recovery, and their thoughts. Our drug and alcohol treatment center in Boca honors patient privacy and confidentiality. The focus of motivational interviewing for substance abuse is to help patients realize the contributing factors to their challenges and devise an effective action plan. Motivational interviewing is also commonly used in dual diagnosis treatment and mental health programming.

Benefits of Motivational Interviewing for Addiction Treatment

Motivational interviewing is used to address a variety of issues. Our motivational interviewing therapy at Banyan Treatment Centers Boca has helped countless patients stay on track with their recovery from addiction and mental illness.


Our motivational interviewing for addiction in Boca offers a variety of benefits, including:

  • Helping patients feel more open to receiving addiction treatment or mental health treatment
  • Helping patients realize the source of their distress
  • Teaching patients healthy coping mechanisms for stress management
  • Motivating patients to make the necessary changes in their lives to sustain their sobriety
  • Helping patients identify problematic behavioral patterns and healthy replacements for them
  • Teaching patients how to identify and cope with negative thoughts and emotions

Addiction recovery usually requires certain changes that can be scary and intimidating for someone who has engaged in substance abuse for a long time. When combined with drug or alcohol addiction treatment, motivational interviewing techniques can give patients the boost they need to progress in their recovery. While this technique is used for various conditions, we understand that each person’s recovery journey is unique. Motivational interviewing for recovery at our Boca rehab center is both structured and adaptable to ensure that the patient’s needs are met.

Motivational Interviewing for Addiction Recovery in Boca Raton

Motivational interviewing is an effective and helpful form of therapy to use during addiction recovery, but it’s not the only form of addiction therapy we offer at Banyan Boca. Not only do we offer various detox and substance abuse programs, including mental health treatment, but we also offer various unique addiction therapies to address the emotional aspect of addiction. While substance-specific treatments cover the most evident aspects of active addiction, incorporating additional therapies is vital to addressing the underlying emotional and mental effects of drug and alcohol abuse. But in order to achieve recovery, patients have to choose to receive treatment. We use motivational interviewing to encourage patients to take that first step and agree to get help for their substance abuse disorder.


The chances of sustaining long-term sobriety increase when additional therapy is received. If you or someone you know needs an extra boost to take that first step, contact us today for more information about our motivational interviewing and addiction services.
