Moral reconation therapy (MRT®) is a behavioral therapy created to reduce the likelihood of someone returning to drug or alcohol abuse. The original use of MRT® was with individuals in the criminal justice system who had histories of substance use disorders (SUD). Within this population, MRT® focused on the moral components of SUD and the consequences associated with it, such as incarceration. The ultimate goal of MRT® was to prevent the re-offense of drug-related crime. Recently, MRT® has been recognized as an evidence-based therapy, and its use has been incorporated into mental health treatment therapy programs.
Harmony Hills is a Florida treatment center providing a full range of comprehensive mental health and co-occurring disorders.

Like cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), MRT® aims to change the thought processes and decision-making associated with substance use disorders and undesirable behavior. MRT® utilizes various psychological practices to help identify self-centered beliefs and behaviors and improve moral reasoning and personal growth.
A moral reconation therapy program includes individual and group counseling, structured group activities, and homework. MRT®-trained therapists will guide you through a workbook that breaks down treatment into 16 steps focused on seven specific treatment issues, which are:
Group sessions typically occur once or twice per week for three to six months. MRT® therapists work with you in individual sessions until you complete the workbook, which generally takes 24 to 36 sessions.
Moral Reconation Therapy was developed in 1985 by Dr. Gregory Little and Dr. Kenneth Robinson. The first MRT® programs quickly yielded positive outcomes, and other programs were implemented nationwide. MRT® was credited as an evidence-based therapy in 2008, meaning that numerous studies proved its effectiveness. Today, MRT® is utilized in all 50 states and nine countries across the globe. MRT® use has been adopted in numerous highly accredited mental health and substance use disorder programs where it is used as part of a comprehensive, integrated approach to treating and teaching:
As a holistic approach, MRT® centers on treating the whole person morally, socially, and behaviorally. MRT® is highly effective for treatment-resistant clients. Too often, people give up on trying to get better when they have tried numerous treatment programs and not maintained a healthy recovery. MRT® is ideal for these individuals and offers new hope for a better future.
