The Oregon Practice Improvement Collaborative (OPIC) facilitated the implementation of motivational interviewing (MI) in two community-based substance abuse treatment agencies. "The Change Book: A Blueprint for Technology Transfer" was used to structure and support the implementation of motivational interviewing. As part of the implementation process, the agencies' organizational readiness for change was assessed using standardized instruments developed by Simpson and colleagues. Results from the implementation effort suggest that an MI approach may be just as applicable to facilitating organizational change as it is to facilitating individual behavioral change. When integrated with "The Change Book" framework, MI may provide core strategies for assisting treatment agencies in adopting evidence-based practices and navigating organizational change.
