There are three MRT Programs at the Montgomery County Correctional Facility:
The Youthful Offenders Unit for male inmates ages 21 and under.
Adult MRT Program for Males ages 22 and above which combines a supervised Work Ethics Program with MRT.
MRT for women inmates.
MRT is a cognitive-behavioral treatment program that is designed to increase positive self image with the goal of raising the level of moral reasoning. The program helps the inmates to begin to think about the implications of decisions they make and to give them the tools necessary to make decisions at a higher level of moral judgment. MRT requires active group participation along with structured exercises utilizing a 12 step format. MRT helps the participants understand they have choices and choices have consequences. They are empowered by accepting that they are responsible for their poor decisions not anyone else.
Officers working in the MRT Units are trained in MRT and facilitate groups as well as support the structure and ideals of the program. Counselors assigned to these units conduct regular community meetings as well as a variety of additional programs. The Youthful Offender Unit is a highly structured program that uses MRT as its therapeutic component. Inmates who have not acquired their high school diploma or their GED are required to attend GED classes. Adult male inmates at MCCF may voluntarily enter the Adult Work Force/MRT program. Those inmates who are able to participate in the Work Force Program learn positive work habits and skills. The Women's MRT Unit includes both youthful offenders ages 21 and under as well as adult inmates who voluntarily enter the program.
