|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.|
