At Avalon Malibu, we provide a variety of different therapeutic options because we understand that everyone has different needs. Everyone’s recovery journey is different, so we seek to provide comprehensive care that takes a variety of different factors into account. One of the therapies that we often incorporate into our treatment plans is motivational enhancement therapy (MET). In this blog, we’ll discuss exactly what this type of therapy is as well as some of the different benefits it can have.
Motivational Enhancement Therapy
MET uses various techniques to increase one’s motivation regarding their recovery. This can be an extremely helpful approach, reminding people why they chose recovery and why they should continue with their recovery. MET is not an exclusive form of therapy. It can be used alongside other options, making MET a comprehensive choice that can have a variety of benefits. Let’s go over some of the benefits that can come from MET at Avalon Malibu.
Refocus on Goals
Being able to refocus on your goals can be an extremely powerful benefit of MET. When working with a practitioner, you can remember why exactly you set those goals and also envision what your life will be like when you achieve them.
If you haven’t already established your motivations for recovery, then MET could be the perfect option for you. This form of therapy is an excellent way to identify your goals and define the steps you’ll need to take to achieve them.
Envisioning With Motivational Enhancement Therapy
Picturing life outside of addiction is perhaps one of the most enjoyable benefits that MET can provide. By picturing a life outside of addiction, individuals can feel more motivated and remember why they chose sobriety in the first place. Envisioning positive futures is motivating and can uplift one’s mood. Using MET in this way can be extremely helpful in encouraging individuals to continue with their recovery.
MET helps people find healthy, reliable sources of motivation to rely on consistently throughout life’s difficult moments.
