MARR, its people, its groups, its loving care - and, not the mushy coddling variety, and my personal association with them have helped me find pathways to growth in character and spiritual fitness. I have never been better and make further progress every day...

I have been associated with MARR in some capacity for over 15 years. IMARR has been directly responsible for changing the lives of so many people. The result is they learn how to become responsible, contributing members of society. They learn you have to give it away, to keep it, for fun and for free. They give back, so much more than they have received., and it's just not about living without drugs or alcohol. Their message includes it is an on going spiritual journey, with no destination.

My son was a heroin addict who entered MARR in October 2007. MARR not only treated my son for his addiction, but they helped me and my husband by educating us on the disease of addiction and how to love our son in a way that would help his recovery rather than harm it. We continue to volunteer in the MARR community and believe it to be the best program for recovery. I would highly recommend MARR to anyone who is suffering from the disease of addiction and/or their family members. They are compassionate and they understand how the disease progresses if left untreated. They work with the families as well as the patients so that they can become part of their loved one's solution rather than continue to be part of the problem.

I have been a volunteer at MARR for almost 3 years and being a part of this organization has helped me in my spiritual growth and enabled me to help others through my experiences! Thank you MARR!!

Marr saved my brother's life. He had been struggling with alcohol and drug addiction for several years prior to getting help only to slip back into the world of addiction once more. Marr was his last hope and it truly turned his life around. He is married with 2 precious children now and enjoying a wonderful sober life!

I participated in leading a discussion for the family members with an introduction to Alanon. The family members were grateful and and voiced positive experiences in the other MARR programs that they attended.

There are so many people that need help with their addiction, MARR does a great job of going the extra mile to help as many people as possible who may not otherwise be able to enter treatment with scholarships, fundraisers or referring those who may need a higher level of care to a more appropriate facility

How is your sobriety game today? If you have gone through the MARR program, more than likely your Spiritual, Social, and Sober par are a lot better than average.
With more than 22 years of sobriety through the AA program, I have been a MARR volunteer since 2004. In my own decades of sobriety I have witnessed hundreds of alcoholics and addicts yearning for sobriety. Many make it through the AA program. Others do not. Those who need more help often go through a 28 day program which gets them dried out for a short time, often leaving them more vulnerable than ever for yet another “go ‘round.”
How is MARR different? The ninty day minimum program not only gets the addict wrung out, but gives the resident time to experience living sober while under the close supervision of highly trained, experienced counselors. MARR residents learn the truth about themselves and their common disease. Many discover, for the first time, a personal connection with God. They live in community with other recovering “classmates” and, together, discover the joy of true and lasting sobriety.

I started as a volunteer a little over a year ago. I have been given more than I will ever be able to give. The spiritual side of MARR is so important to the recovery of the men and women. It is a gift to witness the work that MARR does.
