What Is MI?

MI is an evidence-based treatment that is one of the best available to address ambivalence to change. MI is a conversational approach designed to help people discover their own interest in considering and making a positive change in their lives. It helps them express in their own words their desire for change (i.e., "change-talk") about a number of personal issues, such as diet; exercise; managing symptoms of mental illness and physical illness; reducing and eliminating the use of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs.
