Our alumni at MARR not only serve as support for our newer clients, but also incorporate fellowship and fun as an integral part of their recovery. There are many events throughout the year in which alumni members can get involved.
Clients at MARR form meaningful relationships early on in their therapeutic community, and we want to help nurture those friendships well past graduation with a strong alumni program. From service work to alumni activities and aftercare groups, our mission is to provide ongoing support for alumni so they can live a “happy, joyous and free” life in recovery.
CARRYING THE MESSAGE
We invite men and women in active recovery who completed addiction treatment at MARR to become an active member of our alumni community! These individuals are a vital part of our objective to bring lasting recovery to those struggling with addiction.
Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to alcoholics, and to practice these principles in all our affairs. -Step 12, Alcoholics Anonymous
MARR believes long-term addiction recovery happens when the message of recovery is carried from one alcoholic/addict to another.
WORKING WITH NEWCOMERS
Working together is a fundamental component of staying sober. MARR celebrates our alumni and what they offer to current clients and new graduates. Through a spirit of mentorship and support, alumni members share their experience, strength and hope to new members as they transition from treatment to their home environment.
