Moral Reconation Therapy
Moral Reconation Therapy (MRT) is the premiere cognitive-behavioral treatment program for substance abuse populations. It revolves around the idea that moral reasoning influences the thoughts, beliefs, and attitudes, which leads to better decision making and more appropriate behavior. The term “moral” refers to the concept of moral reasoning based on Kohlberg’s levels of cognitive reasoning, which refers to the process of making conscious decisions. The word “reconation” comes from the psychological terms “conative” and “conation,” both of which refer to the same process of making decisions based on the same conscious awareness. Strong moral reasoning allows people to identify and acknowledge the moral implications—including professional and social consequences—of their Mental Health Disorder.
Moral Reconation Therapy (MRT) helps patients turn moral reasoning into a conscious acknowledgement and pursual of fair, just, and appropriate moral behavior.

This form of therapy seeks to strengthen a patient’s moral reasoning skills so that they can understand the moral aspects of their actions and determine a more appropriate or just behavior for themselves.
Moral Reconation Therapy (MRT) began as a behavioral treatment program for substance abuse populations, including people within the criminal justice system with Substance Abuse Disorders. Moral As research and knowledge of this treatment plan evolve, psychologists are finding that Moral Reconation Therapy (MRT) can help anyone who struggles with substance abuse, past trauma, and egocentric behaviors.
