Review for Metro Atlanta Recovery Residences Inc, Doraville, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars

I could not be more pleased with the information, the recommendations and the guidance we obtained from the sensitive and knowledgable staff at MARR. During my daughter's recovery I attended MARR's family workshop and again received valuable information that helped me personally cope and taught me effective ways to support my daughter's recovery process. MARR's family support program is second to none in the nation. I would highly recommend MARR to anyone, both addicts and family members of addicts, without reservation.

I've personnally experienced the results of this organization by attending their family workshop and practicing what I learned.

I would expand the family program so that family members get all the resources and help they need to reinforce the recovery process. Too often the focus is only on the addiction and the family system around the addiction is overlooked. More information, techniques and resources need to get out to the families. They already do a great job. They just need to be able to reach more families.

Role:  Client Served & I followed MARR's assessment recommendations.
