Why Choose MARR Recovery Center?
There are several drug and alcohol rehab facilities in Atlanta, Georgia, so how do you decide which recovery center is the right fit for you or your loved one? Oftentimes, individuals and families that struggle with substance use disorder aren’t sure where to turn for help. At MARR, we provide high-quality, cost-effective addiction treatment for men and women that focuses on the underlying issues behind their addiction.
Since 1975, MARR has served the metro-Atlanta area and beyond. We teach clients how to live a life in recovery, not just how to stay dry. Our gender-specific addiction treatment programs are a minimum of 90 days, which has been shown to be more effective in achieving ongoing recovery from chemical dependency than shorter treatment stays (see NIDA’s “Principles of Effective Treatment“). Our non-profit recovery center is spiritually based and incorporates the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous. We are state-licensed and accredited by The Joint Commission.
The physiology of addiction between men and women is very different and thus, requires a different approach to treatment. We provide a structured and safe environment that is separated by gender. All of our clinicians are licensed and/or certified, as well as experienced in the treatment of drug and alcohol addiction.
Clients of our recovery center participate in group counseling, and they develop a personalized treatment plan with their individual therapist that is reviewed and updated regularly. Alcohol and drug addiction is an isolating disease that affects the physical, mental and spiritual areas of a person’s life. A balanced lifestyle in recovery is the treatment goal of MARR, and we utilize the therapeutic community as the primary treatment agent for change.
Addiction eventually impacts everyone who surrounds the individual, especially the family. MARR’s Family Recovery Center works with parents, spouses, significant others, siblings and children who are affected by a loved one’s addiction. We are dedicated to helping families embrace their own recovery.
Clients of MARR’s addiction treatment facility are fortunate to visit Camp Donnie Brown on a weekly basis. This retreat center, located on Lake Allatoona, is the perfect alternative for additional therapy, exercise and bonding activities. The serenity of the lake, coupled with the wooded surroundings, offer a welcome opportunity for contemplation, introspection and meditation.
MARR gives hope to drug- and alcohol-addicted individuals, making long-term recovery a reality. The experienced and compassionate staff members join clients on their journey and walk with them for life.
