I came to MARR in 2009 on the brink of death. I was spiritually bankrupt, emotionally broken, mentality beat, and physically sick. I didn't think I could be helped in any way, therefore I didn't want help. I forever saw myself on drugs - pipe in hand. Around 6 months clean, I felt a change. I wasn't thinking my way through again. I was feeling the peace that I always searched for and I wanted more of it. Because of MARR, I have a new way of life. The tools laid down by the counselors, staff, and alumni have helped me grow into the person I have always wanted to be but never thought possible. MARR never gave up on me even when I wanted to give up. I have relationships with people that are real. I am present in the lives of my family. I am experiencing life in a different way, by God's grace. Today my spiritual life is what guides me and it all began at MARR. MARR saved me life. I am forever grateful to each and everyone of the counselors who continue to save my life on a regular basis and to the network that surrounds MARR.

I've been given another chance at life. A better life. A fulfilled and enriched life with endless possibilities of obtaining the life I have always wanted. Because of this organization, I can look in the mirror and like what I see in everything I am. I am honest with myself, true to myself, and honest with those around me. My life is filled with God and others.

MARR was where I began my journey to get sober. The staff and volunteers just embraced me when I was so lost and needed a safe secure enviorment. They instituted practices that I still use and value today which began just three short years ago.... They helped me discover the reasons I had failed at my own attempts to get sober. Today I have returned to a full life with the relationships I had lost repaired.

I was a broken and lonely man. I was an atheist. I had been drinking for 40 years. When I sobered up I faced a terrible past. My shame was great. I was deflated. I was accepted and loved, and through that was saved in every way a person can be saved. My children didn't want to see me again 15 months ago and we are a family again.

seeing many families and men become useful and whole

I attended MARR as a client on two different occasions. 1996 & 1998. I was the reason the "refresher" course was required. MARR provided me a safe & secure place for me to begin my recovery. The staff was always very helpful and even provocative as they tried to get me to look at issues that kept me from meaningful sobriety. I finally became willing and have been enjoy a sober and free life since 1998. I have been privileged to assist many others along the path to sobriety as a result of the foundation given to me at MARR. Thanks and God bless you MARR!

When I arrived at MARR I was broken and hopeless. They provided me with the tools I need to live a happy and drug-free life. I will always be grateful for what the MARR staff pushed me to accomplish. With out them I would most definitely not be where I am today, and probably not sober!

I still remember the day my addict and I arrived. It was our first treatment program and the staff was so understanding of my needs and treated my husband with respect. Not having contact for that first few weeks gave me the time to heal. On his first visit home I saw a completely different person. A guy who seemed to get that the program taught a different way of thinking acting and responding.

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

A beginning to my husbands long journey of learning to love himself and understanding the disease it's self.

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

Home visits towards the end of the program should be longer. Going from two days to three days to a week before coming home for good. Also more follow up from MARR staff for the first 30 days.

MARR helped me get my recover back on track. After many years of sobriety, I had a relapse and found that coming back is much harder than coming in. The counselors at MARR helped me set my priorities straight and regain my life.

Everyday that I wake up sober and am able to be of service instead of enslaved to alcohol, I experience the results of this organization.
