"Unlike other types of addiction counseling, motivational interviewing combines supportive and directive strategies," says Doug Polcin, a research scientist at ARG, who directs the study. "It allows clients to see how their behavior is affecting their lives, which helps lead them to develop a road map for change."
Polcin, also an adjunct faculty member of the John F. Kennedy University's department of counseling psychology, serves as the study's principal investigator.
