Marr has been a life saver for my son in law and my daughter. He has been working the program for over two years. It has not been a instant fix for all the problems he has had to face. Through Marr he is learning how to stay in recovery with the help of God, the dedicated staff, his sponser, and all his good friends he has made throught this remarkable program. His support system is always there to help him whenever needed. His whole life is changing because of Marr.

My daughter has become very spiritual and learned many new life skills to handle what has come her way. Marr has taught her how to stay healthy mentally and physically in order to take care of herself and her family. Her faith has grown in leaps and bounds and is felt throughout her whole family. She continues to expound on the value of Marr in her life often. She is such a better person because of Marr.

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

watching my daughter grow in her love of God, Her spiritual maturity has kept her all together and she is doing a wonderful job helping her family in every way possible. Marr gave her such strong skills that I know she will be alright.

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

More scholarship funds.

Through MARR, I watched the rebirth of a human being, my friend and brother in law. At age 50, MARR broke through the shell of adiction he had built around himself for thirty years. MARR allowed him to become one of the most intergrated and self-actualized people I know. Since he came through his program, I have watched him lead numerous people out of the web of adiction. It has been our pleasure to donate to MARR, and I only wish that I could do more. MARR is one of the true winners in our world.

My participation with MARR has been as a donor having spoken with and socialized with several folks from the organization. It was so rewarding to observe the many ways MARR has rescued addicted persons and helped them regain their professional footing! If not for the organization several of my friends and members of their families would still be struggling with addiction. With the intervention and structured input from the trained professionals at MARR my friends and their family members have been able to reenter the work force with renewed enthusiasm and confidence. All this was done while maintaining their feeling of self worth!! A wonderful group and I'm proud to be a long time donor to the MARR family.

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

my attendance at many year end MARR banquets!

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

hope for them to be able to raise more money!

This Program saved the life of our friend and we are very grateful for that.
Also we have had the opportunity to meet others in the program, whose lives have been changed through this ministry. It not only got him off the addictions, but also he is a productive member of society and contributes to the well being of others and a wonderful witness.

MARR has a proven track record of changing lives. The comments here are evidence of the merits of the program. Those who choose to walk through their doors have an incredible opportunity to reclaim a productive and meaningful life. I am always impressed with the success I experience at their annual MARR event which celebrates the hundreds of victories over addiction every day!

Upon completing a residential 28-day program, the recommendation was for my son to move into a community that would provide the on-going support he needed. After extensive research, MARR seemed like the place for him. By living in a "safe" environment, having counseling, working AA's Twelve Steps, relying on his "higher power", helping others, and more, MARR helped my son regain his life and eventually his independence.

Seeing my son's success after treatment.

I am the mother of a patient. I came to MARR for the Family program. I learned so much about how an addict thinks. But I think the best part of the program for me was to realize that I am not alone in facing the problems having an addicted family member brings. And I learned that no matter how much I want to help; the problem belongs to my son. Detachment went against all my mothering inclinations but I learned it i the better way.
The very best part of our MARR experience is his continuing recovery and his dedication to the program;faithful in going to his meetings and unfailingly helpful to his fellow AA members.
The program i truly a life saver.

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

having peace of ind and knowing I can depend on my on in my old age.

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

I was completely pleased with my experience.

I have seen the phenomenal results in the 180 degree lifestyle changes of my nephew, a patient with MARR; and in the life of our family doctor's son. We also have a friend and one of our doctors helping my family; he
has been at MARR in many roles.

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

the lives of a handful of remarkable people.

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

be certain that MARR is known to many.

To Me One of the things that sets MARR apart from other treatment facilities is their great staff. They don't just simply move clients through the process of treatment like they are checking items off a list. They truly care about the individual and the family, which often leads them to go above and beyond to serve their clients. Your not just a number at "MARR".
