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.

By being associated with MARR as volunteer and donor for many years, I have witnessed the impact it has had on many changed lives for the better.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

hope they would receive more money, to be able to continue in the service they provide in helping combat the disease of alcoholism and addiction.

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!!

Through volunteering, I have personally witnessed the transformation of many souls who have entered the MARR program broken begin to see the light and become the person they want to be and their families knew they could be without drugs or alcohol. I've seen them tackle demons and come out on the other side shining!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

There is nothing I would change.

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!

watching my brother reach sobriety!

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

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've been given referrals by marr for help.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

no suggestions at this time.

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've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

watching the clients find new hope.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

do nothing

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.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I find the discussion to be honest and straighforward. It helps me appreciate that healthy group discussions can occur in an environment of recovery.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

None.
