About MRT Addiction/Substance Use Treatment
MRT, as an evidence-based substance use treatment program, consists of 16 steps. A person is considered to have completed once they reach step 12, with the last 4 steps being optional (though highly recommended). The program takes around 24 to 36 group sessions to complete, which are conducted in accordance with Inner Peace’s implementation needs and requirements.
During the treatment process, each person will complete a workbook homework prior to coming to a group session. Within the group, each person will have an opportunity to present their homework to the facilitator, who will decide on whether the person passes and can move onto the next step. If the client does not pass, they will have the opportunity to go back and redo their homework, and present it again at the next group session.
All MRT groups are open-ended, meaning that new clients can enter an ongoing group at any time
