METRO ATLANTA RECOVERY RESIDENCES INC
February 23, 2011

When I had to retire on a disability in 1993 I found I had time on my hands. Someone suggested I volunteer at MARR. It was one of the best decisions I ever made. As an alcoholic with 20 years of sobriety my volunteering experience constantly reminded me just how devastating it is. The magic of MARR is that as a volunteer you watch people get better.
MARR's strength rests on the staff. Their skill, knowledge, compassion and maintaining discipline. These are all incredible people. Unlike many other treatment centers MARR is not a "Country Club". It's sole mission is to let people free themselves from addictions. Without a compassionate discipline an addict can't get better. MARR maintains that discipline. This is a terrific place to get better. I have seen the results first hand.
