What Is a Motivational Enhancement Therapy Program (MET)? MET is a therapy technique that works to eliminate feelings of apathy and/or confusion about why you need treatment. In other words, it works to establish the clear reasons that you’re not as “in control” of your addiction as you may think you are.

Accepting that you’re no longer in control of what you do is a first step in the healing process for many within our holistic therapy program.

Who Benefits Most from MET?

Truthfully, if there’s little inner will to change, a person cannot overcome addiction. It’s that simple. So family members and professionals can get you into rehab. But if you don’t want to make the best of it, you won’t realize the benefits or find lasting recovery.

That’s why a motivational enhancement therapy program in Palm Springs, CA helps people who are in this in-between place.  To achieve better understanding of your addiction as well as its impact, we use motivational interviewing techniques to urge discussion about use.

To this end, you’ll also explore how it’s affecting your life. Then through this same process, you establish the reasons you need to change. Finally, you’ll develop a clear plan to do it.

A motivational therapist may ask you to take a close look at things you don’t want to look at so you can get honest about how the substance is impacting your life areas like:

  • Finances
  • Relationships
  • Health
  • Mental wellbeing
  • Career/Education

Your Phoenix Rising therapist works with you, encouraging you and monitoring how well you’re sticking with the plan you developed to make a change and renew your life.

Research shows that a MET can be especially effective if you’re abusing alcohol or marijuana and less effective with other types of drug abuse.

How a Motivational Enhancement Therapy Program Works

Like so many things in life, it’s best to manage addiction from multiple angles. So a MET program should be combined with both evidence-based and complementary programs such as:
