8 years ago my husband was a patient at MARR for over a year His stay there has changed both of our lives and thanks to help from the terrific counseling staff at MARR we were able to put our marriage back together. I can't say enough good things about the program and the staff there. Since I felt such gratitude and the need to give back to the organization, I volunteered there for several years after he left. I have seen countless men and women find their way back to sober living by the guidance of the selfless staff at MARR. Addiction is a terrible disease and anyone who is fortunate enough to find their way through the doors of MARR and who is willing to do the work as suggested there has a fighting chance at a better life.

MARR is the program that allowed my brother to save his life and, by doing so, it renewed our family. It gave him a community of men who would challenge his excuses and remind him of his value. MARR took my brother back to his core values, and reminded him that God was willing and able to bless his life. My family is whole, and I am a Face and Voice of Recovery because of the choices my brother made, at 30+, as a client of MARR.

As part of a local recovery group, I know several people personally who went through MARR. I have heard their testimony of how MARR helped them when they had nowhere else to go. MARR provides invaluable help to people who have lost all hope and do not know where to turn. I think they make the difference between life and death. Further, they provide hope where once there was none. They set the needy back on the path to physical and spiritual health. I know those who are now healthy, happy productive citizens once again. It is truly amazing. This is an awesome group that needs all the support they can get.

MARR professional staff is populated with a lot of people who have had their own first-hand experience with addiction. Dealing with them you have the feeling that they truly understand the problems of their clients and provide guidance that is based on more than just their professional training. This is a first class group of people helping others.

I have a family member that successfully completed the treatment program offered by MARR 5 or 6 years ago. MARR not only treated the current addiction challenges but also provided the assistance needed to make long-term life changes. I am sure I speak for my entire family when I say MARR and the exceptional people involved with MARR offer more than "treatment". They have a way of making everyone they work with feel comfortable and confident. I would recommend MARR to anyone facing the tough challenge of addiction.

I see a life lived in healthy recovery from my son-in-law each and every day. I applaud MARR for the incredible good work they do.

I continue to see the great impact of what MARR has done, and continues to do, through Anna. She applies the principles of recovery and MARR's teachings in her daily life, and she is also diligent in helping others do the same, through her sponsorship. MARR's dedication and care are crucial components in the health, recovery, and well-being of its patients and their family and friends. I commend MARR for the phenomenal work they do. They are a true blessing!

As the mother of 4 young adults, with 3 in recovery, I cannot say enough about the success of the programs at MARR. The Womens' center along with the professional advocacy program really got my daughter back on track. She has six years of sobriety. My son spent nearly eight months with the Mens' center at MARR, working his way through the initial 90 days, then half house, then outpatient/work but still in MARR apartments.
There is no doubt in my mind that MARR saved his life.
Both of these "MARR Graduates" are still in close contact with their counselors and friends from MARR. It will always be a source of comfort to them. The daughter that received treatment at another facility has no such loyalty to that instituion nor does she keep in touch with anyone that she became sober with. In fact, she has frequent contact with the MARR staff who came to know her well while her sister and brother were in treatment.
MARR treats patients and their families like part of the whole organization. Families are urged to participate. All questions are referred to the most capable counselor in that field.
I have and will continue to refer suffering families to MARR.
