Exceeding Your Expectations


MRT is a widely accepted cognitive-behavioral technique treating substance use disorders, trauma, domestic violence, and more. Similar to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), MRT aims to transform thought processes and decision-making associated with addiction and criminal behavior


Criminal and Addictive Thinking patterns are linked. Each criminal thinking pattern is closely related to an addictive thinking pattern. Understanding, defining and woking through these will help you be successful in your treatment.


Relapse Prevention is the use of coping skills, recovery tools to diminish the likelihood or re-occurrence of relapse. Relapse-prevention plans can be individualized based on our preferences. If one person likes to meditate and walk in the park for stress relief and grounding, those can and should be used for preventing relapse. Anything that helps us healthfully manage and process our emotions is a great inclusion in a relapse prevention plan.
