The book is used with all types of juvenile offenders and juvenile substance abusers. MRT is an NREPP program used for substance abuse and general treatment of juveniles.
MRT is used in all juvenile settings, probation and parole, community corrections, diversion programs, in private treatment settings, in welfare-to-work programs, educational settings, drug/mental health/juvenile courts, and elsewhere.
How It Is Conducted
The program has 16 Steps with 12 of these typically completed in 30 group sessions held in accordance with the implementation site’s own needs and characteristics. Clients complete homework for each group prior to coming to a session. In group each client presents his or her homework and the facilitator passes the client to the next step or has the client redo the homework based on objective criteria. All MRT groups are open-ended meaning that new clients can enter an ongoing group at any time. Each group session will usually have new clients as well as some finishing the program. All MRT facilitators must complete basic MRT training.
