Paying for Treatment

Covering the Cost of Long-Term Residential Treatment

When choosing an addiction treatment center for yourself or a loved one, cost is one of the most important deciding factors. At MARR, we remain committed to offering quality, long-term, gender separate addiction treatment for men and women struggling with substance use disorder.

We offer individualized financial assistance. We understand that the needs of each client vary, and we do not want cost to be a barrier to receiving quality care.

Why Being a Non-Profit Is Important

Since its inception in 1975, MARR has been a non-profit treatment facility. Being a non-profit has allowed us to maintain the integrity of our client care. Rather than focusing on year-end profits, our non-profit status allows  us to focus our treatment on supporting long-term recovery and prioritizing client care. 

Providing this support for clients over a period of 12 weeks to a year  takes financial resources, which we supplement through fundraising efforts, donations, a scholarship fund, and grants. This allows us to keep costs as low as possible while not compromising the level of care.

Why the Long-Term Treatment Model?

Long-Term Treatment for Long-Term Recovery – 12 Weeks to One Year

Rewiring the neural patterns laid down during addiction takes time and countless repetitions of daily activities in sobriety. To help clients accomplish this safely, the counseling staff and their sober residential community support them over a long period of time as they gradually take on more responsibility and autonomy in treatment. Clients will go through the process of:

  • Transitioning through various levels of care
  • Living and functioning as part of a community
  • Finding a sponsor and working the 12 Steps
  • Working with an individual counselor
  • Participating in regular community groups
  • Returning to the work environment 
  • Rebuilding relationships with family and friends in a healthy way
  • Engaging in real-world experiences in a therapeutic setting
The long-term model allows the clients to gradually go through the rebuilding process of learning to live in recovery, while utilizing the guidance and support of their MARR counselors, residential community, process groups, and the alumni and volunteer network.

“I needed to be part of a stable and supportive treatment environment for of a long period of time... I simply would not have been able to stay sober if I had left after a month or two.” Tricia M., MARR Alumnae
