Researchers involved in the CTN protocols NIDA-CTN-0006 and NIDA-CTN-0007 (Motivational Incentives for Enhanced Drug Abuse Recovery in Drug Free Clinics and Methadone Clinics) have shown that motivational incentive programs using low-cost reinforcement (prizes, vouchers, clinic privileges, etc.), delivered in conjunction with onsite urine screening promotes higher rates of treatment retention and abstinence from drug abuse. This Blending Team product focuses on informing the field about successful approaches in the use of motivational incentives (also referred to as contingency management). The package includes an instructional CD-ROM, loaded with a video featuring conversations from top researchers to clinicians to patients in the field of addiction and recovery; sample documents that are customizable to your needs; PowerPoint presentations; research articles; and various additional resources (fishbowl tickets, e.g.).
This product was updated in 2011, providing improved tools designed to build awareness of Motivational Incentives as an effective therapeutic strategy within the addiction treatment field. It has been combined with two other MI products, MI:PRESTO and MIIS, to form a "Motivational Incentives (MI) Suite." All three products are available online at: http://www.bettertxoutcomes.org/.
