A Proven Approach to Treatment

Welcome to Motivational Incentives-A Proven Approach to Treatment, a collection of products which offer tools needed to learn about and use Motivational Incentives. Also, referred to as Contingency Management, Motivational Incentives has been subject to decades of research in the addiction treatment field; beginning in the 1960s. This collection of products assists organizations along a continuum from raising awareness about Motivational Incentives through dissemination and implementation activities.

Promoting Awareness of Motivational Incentives (PAMI) is an introductory training that exposes organizations to the principles of Motivational Incentives and demonstrates evidence of clinical effectiveness. Behavioral healthcare practitioners can then deepen their knowledge about Motivational Incentives through participating in the free, self-guided, interactive on-line course, Motivational Incentives: Positive Reinforcers to Enhance Successful Treatment Outcomes (MI:PRESTO). Treatment organizations can also access additional implementation support through the Motivational Incentives Implementation Software (MIIS), developed by the National Institute on Drug Abuse and available at no cost. This desktop software provides mechanisms for maintaining patient information and Motivational Incentive activities.
