Essentials - Motivational Interviewing

Motivational Interviewing is a psychotherapy which helps individuals understand and manage their reluctance to change behavior. Overcoming this resistance is a fundamental step in helping individuals with a substance use disorder begin the process of recovery.

Substance Use Disorders are one of the major medical disorders whether measured in personal, economic, or epidemiologic terms. All physicians will encounter patients with substance use disorders and primary care providers are the gateway to both initial treatment and subsequent referrals to specialists. This CME will provide participants with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to discuss substance use disorders with their patients and make informed treatment plans and referrals.
