In this session we will introduce the principles of motivational incentives used in the substance abuse treatment field. The trainers will discuss motivational incentives as a science-based therapeutic strategy within the addiction treatment field. Extensive research has consistently shown that client motivation for positive behavioral change can be influenced by the use of novel interventions based on established behavioral principles. Recognition of patient achievements also provides a valuable mechanism for acknowledging success and the attainment of goals, developing positive self-image, providing ongoing, consistent staff and peer support, and motivating others by offering models to emulate.
