I am a United Methodist minister and a Licensed Associate Professional Counselor practicing in the Atlanta area. MARR is my first choice for referral for my clients and parishioners dealing with addiction. I have observed that the people I have sent to MARR and that have completed their program have excellent clinical outcomes. Whenever I have needed consultation or guidance, the staff at MARR has always taken time to assist me. For anyone serious about recovery, MARR is an excellent place to begin. I consider MARR to be Atlanta's premiere substance abuse treatment program.

MARR has long been known as an Atlanta resource for substance abuse treatment. An abundance of professional expertise means that a client has a good shot at an appropriate diagnosis and treatment plan. Staff has a high percentage of certified and licensed workers.

I want to say that for as long as I have been in private practice (16 years) I have never heard anything but wonderful things about MARR. I have recently befriended another professional colleague whose life was saved by her treatment at Marr. She has now been sober for 28 years and is a successful clinician and wonderful human being! She showed up at MARR addicted to various drugs and had no money in her pocket. MARR gave her a scholarship. She had a strong spiritual experience there and has kept up her 12-step program ever since. Thanks for helping so many people who might otherwise not gotten the opportunity to receive such invaluable help for addiction.

In 1987, MARR saved my husband from the fatal disease of addiction. I did not meet him until 1989, and as a result, I got clean as well. Today, he has 23 years clean and I have 21. It was his journey at MARR that helped him to see the purpose in his life. He worked in the field of addiction treatment for several years and 12 years ago, we started our own treatment center. Both of us are Certified Addiction Counselors today. MARR not only helps families and addicts suffering from this dreaded and powerful disease, they also encourage people like us to get involved and have mentored us and our program in a myriad of ways. I am forever grateful that through MARR I found the love of my life, I found myself and I found great mentors.

Metro Atlanta Recovery Residences (MARR) is staffed with people who care deeply about serving patients with addictions. They recognize that long-term recovery begins with long-term treatment, and don't sell out to the third party payor system that results in undertreatment. Their professional program encourages continued involvement with the recovery community and the cultivation of integrity is the result.

As a woman with 25plus years of recovery in A.A., I have met several "graduates" of the MARR Program. They more often than not appear to have been empowered by the therapeutic process while living at MARR. Upon their discharge they are given instructions to seek out the twelve step meetings and this is where I meet with them. It gives me great pleasure to work with them as they internalize the concept of sobriety and incorporate the twelve steps into their lifestyle. Of course, upon their being a MARR alumni, my work with them is minimized. The structure they apparantly receive and the education re the disease aspect of addiction is excellent.
I am a "replant" from NYC and I have lived here under four years. "Tis a shame, MARR can't be duplicated in the Greater New York land of recovery.
