Men’s Recovery Center
Drug and alcohol treatment for men struggling with addiction
Men’s Recovery Center
Recovery from drug and alcohol addiction is an ongoing commitment. MARR provides a safe environment for men that encourages openness and a sense of community. The Men’s Recovery Center (MRC) is a spiritually based, two-phase structure that requires a minimum of 90 days of residential drug and alcohol treatment. Our rehab center gradually guides men into a balanced lifestyle and on the road to recovery. MRC’s therapeutic community model promotes responsibility and accountability, as well as establishes healthy habits.
Stages of Treatment
Phase I – Beginning with an intensive day-treatment schedule, clients receive individual attention and group therapy to ensure a complete understanding of the foundation for recovery. Together with a certified substance abuse counselor, each client learns about the crucial components of sober living and real-world recovery. This includes the 12-Step Program, the disease model of addiction, relapse prevention and healthy coping behaviors. Phase I of treatment lasts between 30 and 45 days.
Phase II – When clients enter Phase II of addiction treatment at MARR’s Men’s Recovery Center, they must obtain employment or find volunteer placement if appropriate. The structure of a daytime job, evening groups, working with a sponsor and interacting with their therapeutic community is essential in early sobriety. Clients learn how to put their recovery first and live one day a time. Phase II of treatment lasts approximately 60 days.
As men progress through drug and alcohol treatment, other core issues are often identified. MARR’s primary focus is the treatment of substance use disorders (formally called chemical dependency); however, we can address additional issues as they relate to addiction and include them as a part of their overall treatment plan.

What Is Therapeutic Community?
Addiction is an isolating disease. At the Men’s Recovery Center, the therapeutic community is the primary agent of change. Clients live in a therapeutic setting, sharing a residence with other clients of the same gender.
Together in this home-like environment, they learn to live healthier lives through a connection with others, self and a Higher Power. Maintaining a balance between the day-to-day activities of work, groups, addiction treatment and home life offers clients vital life skills in early recovery.
An important component of the therapeutic process is the use of contracts. As part of the community, clients construct both concrete and growth goals for themselves. These goals, in the form of a contract, are then shared with the community to acquire support and accountability toward achieving them. Members of the community become responsible to one another as they begin their recovery journey.
After successfully completing all requirements outlined in their drug and alcohol treatment plan, clients may be eligible for MARR’s extended recovery residences (Phase III). These communities provide a sober living environment with the necessary structure to continue practicing the recovery lifestyle with peer accountability and support.
