ABSTRACT Background: Substance use is a chronic disorder that requires lifelong multimodal management. This study utilized the Multi-Theory Model (MTM) of Health Behavior Change to identify correlates of change in substance use behavior. Methods: Data were collected, using a cross-sectional design, from 93 participants who completed treatment at a substance use treatment facility. Participants completed a 40-item, newly developed, self-administered questionnaire, grounded on relevant substance… 

Testing the Multi-Theory Model for Initiation and Sustenance of Smoking Cessation at Kathmandu Metropolitan City, Nepal: A Cross-Sectional Study

MTM has the usefulness to assess both the initiation and sustenance behavior of SC, and potential solutions using MTM constructs should be developed in future interventions to change behavior ofSC.

Conceptualization of college students’ COVID-19 related mask-wearing behaviors using the Multi-Theory Model of health behavior change

A need to design educational programming based on the Multi-theory Model of behavior change to promote mask-wearing behavior among laggards who defy face mask guidelines, recommendations, and mandates is suggested.

Assessing Attitudes and Beliefs Toward HPV Vaccination among Ghanaian Parents with Unvaccinated Adolescents: Application of Multi-Theory Model of Behavior Change

Objective: The purpose of the study was to assess the attitudes and beliefs towards HPV vaccination among Ghanaian parents with unvaccinated adolescents using the Multi-Theory Model (MTM) of behavior



Testing multi-theory model (MTM) in predicting initiation and sustenance of physical activity behavior among college students

Based on this study’s findings, MTM appears to be a robust theoretical framework for predicting PA behavior change and development of suitable intervention strategies are discussed.

The evaluation of a fourth-generation multi-theory model (MTM) based intervention to initiate and sustain physical activity

There were directional improvements in the mean scores for most of the study variables over time for the MTM intervention group and statistically significant improvement in minutes of physical activity and waist circumference.

Efficacy of extensive intervention models for substance use disorders: A systematic review

The review highlights that models designed specifically for persons with multiple treatment re-entries are scarce, but promising, and further research is needed to determine the best match between the clinical profile of persons with substance use disorder and a model's components, intensity and duration.

Using Multitheory Model of Health Behavior Change to Predict Adequate Sleep Behavior

The multitheory model of health behavior change in predicting adequate sleep behavior in college students was used and the construct of behavioral confidence (P < .001) was found to be significant and accounted for 24.4% of the variance.

The Impact of Substance Use Disorders on Families and Children: From Theory to Practice

Family systems theory and attachment theory are theoretical models that provide a framework for understanding how SUDs affect the family and helps inform assessment of impairment and determination of appropriate interventions.

Predictors of Responsible Drinking or Abstinence Among College Students Who Binge Drink: A Multitheory Model Approach

This study provides empirical justification for MTM constructs that can be used to inculcate the intention to drink responsibly or abstain among college students who binge drink.

Using multi-theory model to predict initiation and sustenance of small portion size consumption among college students

Based on this study’s findings, MTM appears to be a robust theoretical framework for predicting small portion size consumption behavior change and interventions in this regard need to be designed.

Drug dependence, a chronic medical illness: implications for treatment, insurance, and outcomes evaluation.

Evidence that drug (including alcohol) dependence is a chronic medical illness is examined and results suggest that long-term care strategies of medication management and continued monitoring produce lasting benefits.

Multi-Theory Model and Predictors of Likelihood of Accepting the Series of HPV Vaccination: A Cross-Sectional Study among Ghanaian Adolescents

Significant predictors of adolescents’ likelihood of completing HPV vaccination recommended series were perceived beliefs, practice for change, and emotional transformation, which underscore important opportunities for developing educational interventions for adolescents in Ghana to increase the HPV vaccination uptake.
