Our alumni at MARR not only serve as support for our newer clients, but also incorporate fellowship and fun as an integral part of their recovery. There are many events throughout the year in which alumni members can get involved.
Clients at MARR form meaningful relationships early on in their therapeutic community, and we want to help nurture those friendships well past graduation with a strong alumni program. From service work to alumni activities and aftercare groups, our mission is to provide ongoing support for alumni so they can live a “happy, joyous and free” life in recovery.

CARRYING THE MESSAGE
MARR invites you to become an active member of our alumni community! The alumni group is made up of men and women in active recovery who participated in addiction treatment at MARR. These individuals are a vital part of our mission: to bring lasting recovery to those affected by the disease of addiction.
Because MARR is a spiritually based program centered on the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), we strongly believe in the 12th Step: Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to alcoholics, and to practice these principles in all our affairs (emphasis added). MARR believes long-term addiction recovery happens when the message is carried from one alcoholic/addict to another.
WORKING WITH NEWCOMERS
Working together is a fundamental component of staying sober. MARR celebrates our alumni and what they offer to current clients and new graduates. Through a spirit of mentorship and support, the alumni share their experience, strength and hope to those who are struggling with addiction. Our alumni assist new members as they transition to their home community and help educate their own communities about long-term addiction recovery.
