       This study examined   whether   Motivational  Interviewing  (MI),
     found  effective with voluntary entrants to drug  treatment, would
     improve  intrinsic motivation and  treatment retention among  drug
     court  probationers.  Probationers   were  randomly assigned to
     receive either a two-session MI intervention or a two-session Drug
     Education   (DE) intervention preceding drug-free outpatient coun-
     seling. Participants who  received MI (n =  72) did not differ from
     participants who  received DE  (n = 68) nor from  participants who
     did  not attend  either MI or DE  sessions (n = 56) on  changes  in
