TIP 35: Enhancing Motivation for Change in Substance Abuse Treatment

How Can We Help?

< Back

This updated Treatment Improvement Protocol (TIP) manual was developed by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and helps clinicians influence the change process in their clients by incorporating motivational interventions into substance use disorder treatment programs. It describes different interventions that can be used at all stages of change. The manual includes the latest evidence on motivation-enhancing approaches and strategies. It describes how SUD treatment providers can use these approaches and strategies to increase participation and retention in SUD treatment (SAMHSA – Revised, 10/2019).
