I have seen first-hand how powerful the work of MARR is. A relative of mine was in serious trouble until he connected with MARR. He had been in other rehab programs before but MARR was the only one that was able to help him in deep and profound ways. Now he has been clean and sober and a strong role model in the community for almost 2 decades. I applaud the work MARR is doing -- it is changing the world!

I have been a friend to many people who have been directly served by MARR. I have had the distinct pleasure to know both MARR Staff members and Board members, whose wisdom and kindness have touched my life every time I interact with each and every one of them. When I watch them in action with their clients, I sense their compasssion and understanding. As a sober Alcoholic, I can attest to this Recovery Center's programs and their integrity in working to help people attain sobriety and a happy, healthy and productive new life.

Our daughter had been in one other rehab program for alcohol use and did not stay in recovery. Two doctors recommended the MARR program and out of desparation she entered MARR dragging her feet. Within a few weeks she reported that the former rehab program was "Mickey Mouse" compared to this and that she thanked us for sending her. We saw her gain self-confidence and being responsible. She decided to stay for 18 months and they had to convince her she could succeed outside the program. What a miracle we have experienced. She has been employed in a managerial position for four years, is married and a happy mother of two young children. God and MARR are awesome together.

We had to leave our daughter in the hands of God and MARR and step out in faith that she would come out a new person and she is now the daughter we always knew she could be.

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

None. Whatever they are doing is working miracles in lives.

Several MARR alumni are close friends of mine. I know that they attribute their recovery and success in life to their experience in MARR program. Each year we attend the annual "Celebration of Recovery" MARR banquet. The 1000+ people at that event are a true testimony to the outstanding work that MARR does day in and day out.

I would not make any fundamental changes to the organization.

I believe in the program taught at MARR. Many of the past clients are good friends of mine. I would not have this privilege if it had not been for MARR.

I,ve had the opportunity to get to know a lot of MARR alumni in the last three years. I,ve seen them come in and go out. The best part of my experience with them is seeing the happiness that they leave with. A confidence in them selves that was not there when they arrived. They leave with a knowledge of them selves and of the world around them. There is a true opportunity to grow which i have had the pleasure of watching. And for that I say, thank you.

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

I would not change anything.

I've had the blessing of having known many MARR clients, and have had MARR clients in my big book studies in past years. Many MARR grads are now part of my recovery family. I've referred to MARR, and have at times sought counseling for myself from one of their counselors when I was in a relationship with an addict. I have nothing but the highest praise for the organization. It takes the broken and loves and guides them thru the healing process. It has to be one of the best places an addict or alcoholic could find himself. I know many graduates who have full and successful lives now - what greater testament is there to their effectiveness? God bless you, MARR.

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

Some counseling I received at one time from one of their counselors. I've seen the results in the MARR clients I've known and still know.

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

Find a whole bunch of money to give to them. :-) The only thing I'd change would be, if I could, their financial support.

As a pastor in North Georgia I had the opportunity to work with a variety of people. Many of them had problems related to recovery issues. One member in particular of our congregation spoke high of the change in her life because of MARR. After hearing her story and her before and after experiences, I had no problem referring others to the program. MARR has changed many lives and for that I am very thankful.

the changed lives of the people with whom I have worked.

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

open branch locations in other parts of the region to help more people.

Both my brother-in-law and stepson have attended the MARR program. They were given a sound foundation of tools to use to help them with their life time commitment to sobriety. The staff at MARR is very caring, knowledgeable and yet firm in working with all of their clients. I would strongly recommend this program to anyone seeking help with alcohol or drug addition.

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

Seeing the impact the program had on my stepson and brother-in-law.

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

Have more proactive interaction from the MARR staff with those that have finished the program.
