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

Rating: 5 stars  

My husband graduated from MARR South in the spring of 2009 after spending a little more than 90 days at the newly named Traditions, MARR's Morrow location. I am forever grateful for every bit of information, counseling, guidance and support that MARR has provided my family. Because of MARR, our children will have a chance to grow up in a home with emotionally healthy parents who don't follow the unspoken code, "don't feel, don't tell & don't trust." MARR's staff is comprised of the most genuinely compassionate, understanding and proffessional men and women who excel at what they do. They treated my husband and I with dignity and respect as they guided us towards our own recovery from addiction and codependancy. I can not thank them enough!

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

ways I never expected. MARR offers family services which I took advantage of. I have attended the spousal support group for 2.25 years, recieved individual counseling from the family counselor, participated in both couples couseling as well as a couples group. I attended the very informative and emotionally exhausting family week and work my own 12step program in al-anon. MARR has guided me to better understand my role in the relationship with the addict as well as help me regain my personal power.

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

give the counselors more support personel. The counselors do such a great job, but I'm sure they could use the help as they appear to "do it all."

Role:  Client Served & I received both individual and couples counseling as well as participate in the spousal support group. .
