Tailoring Treatment

It’s great to be back at the MARRCH Annual Conference & Expo after a several year hiatus. This year, I’ll be speaking on tailoring treatment using the transtheoretical model (26 October, 12:30 p.m.). You can find my PowerPoint here.

The transtheoretical model is seemingly central to addiction treatment, but do we effectively use it?

  • Do we accurately stage patients upon admission and during their course of care?
  • Does our interpersonal stance match each patient’s stage of change?
  • Do we use appropriate processes of change for each patient’s stage of change?
  • Does it even matter?!

I’ll tackle these questions and much more. ✸
