Abstract: Counselor attitudes toward evidence-based practices, such as motivational incentives/contingency management (MI/CM), are important in bridging the gap between research and practice. Mailed surveys from 1,959 substance abuse treatment counselors showed ambivalence toward MI/CM and strong disagreement with using monetary rewards for achievement of treatment goals. Attitudes were associated with counselors’ educational attainment, a 12-step treatment ideology, affiliation with NIDA’s Clinical Trials Network, and working in opioid treatment programs. Exposure to MI/CM via training was more strongly associated with attitudes when counselors worked in programs that had adopted MI/CM. While there is substantial resistance to MI/CM, dissemination and training about the essential elements of MI/CM may enhance counselors’ receptivity toward this intervention.
