Moral Reconation Therapy

MRT is an objective, systematic treatment system designed to enhance ego, social, moral and positive behavioral growth in a progressive, step by step fashion.  MRT attempts to change how a probationer makes decisions and judgments by raising moral reasoning.  Duration of the program should average four to eight months, depending on the individual progress.  These groups are facilitated by Effingham County Probation Officers who have received over forty hours of training. Referrals for this program are made by probation staff after an extensive assessment has been completed and the need for such programming has been identified.
