In the group each client presents his or her homework and the facilitator passes the client to the next step or has the client redo the homework based on objective criteria. All MRT groups are open-ended meaning that new clients can enter an ongoing group at any time. Please note that should a group member not pass a step, completion dates may change.

The workbook is individualized to specific client needs by requirements to meet with the facilitator or counselor at several modules.
