Women’s Recovery Center
Intensive substance abuse treatment for women
Women’s Recovery Center
Women are affected by addiction differently than men. At MARR in Atlanta, our Women’s Recovery Center (WRC) offers substance abuse treatment that is specific to the needs of women. The program structure and dedicated staff are focused on providing a safe place where women can begin working on their addiction.
As women progress through the addiction recovery process, other core issues are often identified. MARR’s primary focus is the treatment of drug and alcohol addiction; however, we can address additional issues as a part of their overall treatment.
Specific Issues Addressed at WRC
The Women’s Recovery Center requires a minimum 90-day commitment, beginning with intensive day treatment for the first 30 to 45 days. Commonly referred to as “Feeling School,” Phase I includes groups, educational classes and 12-Step work. At the conclusion of this phase, the staff and client review progress and identify treatment goals for Phase II of substance abuse treatment. The client will then meet weekly with an individual therapist to work on these goals.
Phase II at the Women’s Recovery Center requires clients to secure employment or suitable volunteer placement if appropriate. Through a structured daily routine and the therapeutic community model, clients begin to learn a balanced lifestyle of recovery as they continue to attend evening groups and work through Steps 1, 2 and 3.
Extended RecoveryAfter successfully completing all requirements outlined in their substance abuse 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.
Life After MARRGraduates of MARR can take advantage of our continuing care services, including the Alumni community, Renewal Week, and an individualized aftercare plan.
