The Manualized Cognitive Behavior Group offers the Moral Reconation Therapy (MRT) sessions:

  • Reconation implies a reevaluation of decisions.  
  • Moral indicates the process of making correct, prosocial decisions about behavior

The underlying theory of MRT is that clients and substance abusers have low moral reasoning.  MRT is conducted in open-ended groups that may meet once per week.  Homework tasks and exercises are completed outside of the group and then presented to group members during meetings.  MRT does not require high reading skills or high mental functioning levels.
