Reality Therapy is based on the concept that our brain works as a control system. It focuses on the present and upon getting people to understand that they choose essentially all their actions in an attempt to fulfill basic needs. The counselor’s task is to lead them toward better or more responsible choices that are almost always available. It has been found to be effective with substance-related problems, as it focuses on responsibility and on teaching a systematic process that the client may use to regain control of his life in recovery.
