Moral Reconation Therapy (MRT) has been used successfully for over 30 years in all 50 states and 9 different countries. During the last thirty years MRT training has served over 2 million individuals.
MRT training has shown that individuals that have attended classes have a rearrest and recidivism rate that up to 65% lower than the normal rate.
In a study of 19 MRT-based juvenile drug courts, the combined recidivism of the MRT-treated juvenile offenders was 35.7% compared to 52.7% in the comparison groups. This yields a reduction in recidivism of 17%, much better than the 6.5% average recidivism reduction reported in a large study of juvenile drug court results. (Mitchell, et al., 2012).
As evidenced in more than 200 scholarly articles, MRT works because it changes the behaviors and decision-making errors that led to incarceration, addiction, and mental health issues in the first place. MRT helps people achieve long-term stability in their lives.
MRT has used evidence based practices that are backed by research and results. In 2008, MRT was given the status of an “Evidence-Based Program” by SAMHSA.
