I have over 10 very close friends that have been through MARR's program, completed it successfully, and now are living incredible lives. Marr works very well for those who want to change their lives.

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 have met the people who work with MARR and have seen the impact of their program first hand. I feel strongly that MARR not only treats the addiction but prepares clients for the real world.

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.

I was a volunteer at MARR when I lived in the Metro Atlanta area. My daughter was a client there, completing the 90 day inpatient program in 2001. She was there for alcohol abuse. I attended the support group programs on Tuesday night for 3 years. I don't know what we would have done without MARR. 6 years after my daughter completed her program, my husband (who was an alcoholic) FINALLY quit drinking. Unfortunately it was too late for him, healthwise. He died 7 months later. BUT, those 7 months were wonderful. I never would have had the courage or the knowledge to do what was necessary during that time, had it not been for what I learned at MARR. The service MARR provides is exceptional. The staff is professional and yet very caring. I am an ongoing financial supporter. My daughter just passed her 10 year Sobriety Birthday in January. THAT is a gift that MARR made possible. They provide scholarships for people who cannot afford the program. My daughter was given $1000 off the cost of hers. We have recommended MARR to numerous people over the years. It is NOT a "spa" or a "country club", and it is HARD WORK, but if someone really wants to quit whatever their addiction is, MARR will give them all the tools they need to succeed. It is a wonderful organization, deserving of all the recognition they can get. I am deeply grateful for their help in our time of need.

I am not the expert on addition, MARR is. I will leave their program up to them. It works just fine.

I have known about MARR for almost 2 decades now. I was first introduced by one of my friends that has now been sober for 22 years and is a very successful husband and father. While, thankfully, I have had no one in my immediate family require their assistance, I know many people who had gotten their lives back from their exceptional program administered by a concerned and loving staff. I look for small ways that I can give to this organization that means so much to my community!

A staff member of Marr suggested I go to one of the Family of Addicts day Seminars. It was very helpful in helping me as a parent dealing with an adult son. Just setting boundaries and not being an enabler. It also helped me with my feelings of guilt since there had been a divorce when my son was just a child.
Everyone was very kind and helpful.
