Addiction Counseling Program Focus

How do addiction counseling technicians help those struggling to recover from substance use and abuse? One method that addiction counseling technicians often employ is called “motivational interviewing.” Psychology Today states that motivational interviewing “helps people resolve ambivalent feelings and insecurities to find the internal motivation they need to change their behavior. It is a practical, empathetic, and short-term process that takes into consideration how difficult it is to make life changes."1 At Stautzenberger College, you could learn how to use this technique to assist others in your community.
