Efficacy of Motivation Enhancement Therapy and Relapse Prevention in Therapy in Substance Addiction (A Case Study)
Keywords:Efficacy of Motivation Enhancement Therapy, Relapse Prevention, Substance Addiction
AbstractA substance use issue exists when a person encounters any trouble in areas such as medical or physical, psychological, family, interpersonal, social, academic, occupational, legal, financial, or spiritual associated with utilizing substances. These issues can range from non-threatening to very severe. Before developing an addiction to substance, individuals may engage in casual use, but these habits have the potential to become a dependency. Substance dependency holds the potential to not only serve as a remarkably harmful lifestyle but is also detrimental to general health, compromising both individual and social development. Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET) and Relapse Prevention Therapy (RPT) are the most commonly used therapeutic modalities aimed at enhancement of motivation and prevention of relapse. The present case study demonstrates the conceptualization and therapeutic intervention using the techniques of MET and RPT in a patient with multiple substances dependence at precontemplation stage of motivation.
