One of the challenges of Medication-assisted Treatment (MAT) is that clients and counselors often focus on the medication and lose the balance of full recovery. This workshop will focus on how to use the evidence-based practices of motivational interviewing, Interactive Journaling®, cognitive behavioral treatment and the transtheoretical model of behavior change to broaden substance use disorder treatment beyond the “bio” (as in biopsychosocial) administration of the medication. It will help providers collaborate with clients to individualize substance use treatment based on the ASAM Criteria’s multidimensional assessment and develop person-centered services that hold clients accountable and attract them to recovery.
