Substance abuse is the number one health epidemic in the United States, causing more deaths, illnesses and disabilities than any other preventable health condition. The good news is that drug and alcohol addiction is a treatable disease. Research confirms that long-term recovery — a minimum of 90 days — offers the best opportunity for long-lasting recovery.
MARR has a successful 38-year track record in treating addicted individuals and their families. We provide long-term residential treatment at a fraction of the cost of most short-term hospitalizations. However, healthcare costs are ever increasing and our commitment to remain affordable and accessible to everyone in need can only be fulfilled through your generosity.
You have several options available to you to support our ongoing efforts to treat addicted persons and their families. A list of ways to give is provided for your convenience. Please do not hesitate to contact our Fund Development Office for assistance at 678-805-5110, or send an email.
If a loved one or friend of yours is addicted to drugs or alcohol, please call 800-732-5430. Because of your financial support, we’re here to offer advice, help and professional direction to those in need.
