Conversations for Change (CfC) is a community and university-based partnership between a large University, a community service organization and law enforcement. This unique intervention utilizes motivational interviewing (MI), a non-confrontational approach, and targets individuals who have specific opiate addictions and opiate crime related offenses such as theft, burglary, breaking and entering or any drug related offense. Faculty members received a grant that provided gift cards for participants. The objectives for providing gift cards for participants is to incentivize participation in the project; incentivize and  increase in treatment involvement; and incentivize a decrease in related opiate offenses. The benefits of CfC for students are numerous including such things as targeted training in MI, an increased understanding and awareness.
