This Is an Invitation-Only Event

(Only for family members of clients currently in MARR.)

This workshop is an intensive, three-day-long program designed to provide education, support and therapy to adults and adolescents ages 14 and older. The staff at MARR believes that those who have been in relationships with alcohol- and drug-addicted individuals experience their own struggles and pain. If the family is to survive and grow, it is critical that the individual members begin their own recovery process. This workshop is offered approximately every 7-8 weeks. If you have not yet received an invitation by mail or email to register, please contact your MARR counselor before registering for this event.
