The Approach of Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET)
Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET) is an approach to addiction counseling that motivates drug and alcohol abusers to stop using.
It begins with an assessment, followed by motivational sessions with a therapist to help the user engage with their own therapy.
In conjunction with CBT, Stages of Change, Inspire Malibu uses Motivation Enhancement Therapy (MET). MET has been thoroughly researched in the field of substance misuse, and has proven itself as exceptionally effective at enhancing an individual’s motivation to make positive changes in their behavior.
An effective treatment must help clients address, identify, and describe the personal meaning of their addiction. Unless clients understand what they are actually doing on a deep level, they will not be successful at treating their addiction. A responsible comprehensive treatment program takes all aspects into consideration for the ongoing health and well being of the client, and that’s what we do everyday at Inspire Malibu.
