Self-determination theory has proved applicable in tobacco cessation and physical activity. The self-determination theory can predict medical adherence and psychological outcomes among diabetes patients when used in health contexts. Healthcare professionals use SDT to deal with a variety of health behaviors such as dietary change, weight loss programs, dental behavior, and oral health. Possible use of SDT is in drug abuse education and therapy for alcoholism depends on the role of the motivation of the alcoholic’s response to treatment (Sheldon, Williams & Joiner, 17). Application of Self-determination theory with Motivational Interviewing (MI) has improved healthcare services. Organizations where supervisors apply SDT record high level of teamwork, support, and cooperation among workers.
