Moral Reconation Therapy
Specifically designed to meet the needs of clients with a long list of substance abuse related legal issues, the Extended Care Forensic track uses a treatment method called Moral Reconation Therapy (MRT). Pathways Florida pioneered using this evidence-based treatment method in a community-based addiction treatment setting, however, MRT was first used in the criminal justice system with great success. In short, MRT fosters the development of “pro-social” thoughts, relationships and loyalties in clients who are diagnosed with anti-social behavioral disorder. Individuals with this diagnosis tend to have no regard for laws or rules, show a lack of remorse for hurtful and illegal actions and often have repeated legal issues.
