Posttreatment motivation and alcohol treatment outcome 9 months later: findings from structural equation modeling.

Cook S, Heather N, McCambridge J, UKATT Research Te - J Consult Clin Psychol (2014)

Bottom Line: A smaller indirect effect of pretreatment motivation on this outcome was seen from pathways through drinking behavior during treatment and posttreatment motivation (probit coefficient = 0.08, 95% confidence interval [0.03, 0.14]).A similar pattern of results was seen for other outcomes evaluated.Posttreatment motivation to change has hitherto been little studied and is identified here as a clearly important predictor of longer term treatment outcome.

Structural equation model examining relationship between actively changing drinking following treatment and long term drinking outcomes. N = 392. Coefficients are linear regression coefficients for continuous outcomes and probit coefficients for binary outcomes. SBNT = social behavior and network therapy; MET = motivational enhancement therapy; CFI = comparative fit index; TLI = Tucker–Lewis index; RMSEA = root-mean-square error of approximation.

fig1: Structural equation model examining relationship between actively changing drinking following treatment and long term drinking outcomes. N = 392. Coefficients are linear regression coefficients for continuous outcomes and probit coefficients for binary outcomes. SBNT = social behavior and network therapy; MET = motivational enhancement therapy; CFI = comparative fit index; TLI = Tucker–Lewis index; RMSEA = root-mean-square error of approximation.

Mentions: The relationship between motivation to change (pre- and posttreatment) and treatment outcomes 9 months posttreatment was assessed using the structural equation model shown in Figure 1 for Outcome 1. This model was specified a priori by considering the likely temporal relationship between variables. For example, effects of pretreatment motivation to change on drinking outcomes at 9 months posttreatment were considered to be through effects on intermediate variables (drinking during treatment and posttreatment motivation to change). This hypothesis was tested by adding in a direct effect of pretreatment motivation to change on treatment outcomes at 9 months in a sensitivity analysis.
