Treatment motivation among caregivers and adolescents with substance use disorders.
The researchers used self-determination theory to examine intersecting motivational narratives among caregivers and adolescents in substance use disorder treatment. Relationships between motivation, interpretation of caregiver pressures, adolescent autonomy, and relatedness were also explored. Their results suggest the importance of intrinsically motivated treatment, and highlight autonomy support and relatedness as mechanisms that might facilitate treatment engagement.
