Thank you MARR for all that you did for my Uncle. He had struggled for many years and would continue down a destructive path on several occasions....that is until he entered MARR's rehabilitation program. It was almost immediately that our family began to see a difference; a renewed sense of self, newfound faith and remorse for all the wrong he had done. It was incredible; as he progressed further into the program, he became a mentor to others and began giving seminars to support his peers. I have never been so proud of my Uncle as I am today. He has inspired me to make a difference with my life, to walk with the Lord and to give back to the community. I love you Uncle Tharin, I have and always will believe in you.

As the family member of one of MARR's former residents, I am so pleased to see the remarkable change in my brother in law. This was his second chance at rehabilitation and there was a long period of time between the two.
There was a long stretch of time when none of the family knew where he could be found or reached at any given time. When he was around, he seemed to avoid everyone and spent most of his time sleeping or perhaps simply avoiding all of us. He missed so much family time and we missed him. Every member of his family attempted to help him in some way, however, it turned out to be another "him taking advantage of" situation.
Since he entered MARR about 5 years ago, he is so much more involved with all the family and is now enjoying being a great uncle to the new young people in the family. He doesn't pull the "I'll be there" statement and we never hear from him. He is enjoying being employed and earning his keep.
Needless to say, the entire family is so thankful to MARR for breaking through the barrier he had put between feelings he had during his addiction days and his new days of being an involved member of his family.

When my wife and I were at the end of our rope with our son and no where to turn nor any hope left, we finally found the doors of MARR and got him in to their treatment program and because of the way, and only because of the way they approached addiction and treatment, he got it. This was after many years of searching to no avail. It has now been 11 years since he became sober---has a wife and two beautiful little girls, my grand daughters, and is a model citizen giving back where ever he can to society and other suffering alcoholics and addicts. I f someone had told me 11 years and 1 month ago that he could have what he has today, I wouldn't have believed it. Thank you MARR for saving his life. We are blessed beyond words.

I attended a MARR banquet several years ago and have since worked with one of their silent auctions. I have associated with several who have gone through the program. It is so heartwarming to see these individuals get back their lives and to see how they have returned to promote the program. The individuals that I know have turned their lives around and are living proof that this program is a success.

As a member of the recovery community, and as someone who got sober in Atlanta, I have been impressed with the level of recovery that MARR provides. The people that I know who have attended MARR have outstanding recovery, they are committed to staying sober, and are working strong programs. An outstanding facility!

My wife got sober at MARR in 1998 and has been sober ever since. She participated in their professional program for 10 years and thank you to the people there for their wonderful work. MARR is a very special place that helps many, and I like that they focus on the spiritual aspect of recovery.
