Sara---Article-PictureBy Sara Bright, MS
Director of Business Development, MARR, Inc.

In my role as Director of Business Development, I serve as the link between MARR and the Mental Health Community. I chose MARR because I value MARR’s pioneering role in gender specific long-term treatment and commitment to Therapeutic Community as a conduit for healing that has helped men and women seeking recovery for over 40 years.

Research consistently demonstrates that the longer an individual stays in addiction treatment, the greater his or her chances are for achieving lasting recovery. MARR’s safe, structured environment provides the foundation clients need as they begin the challenging journey of creating a quality, joyful life without drugs and alcohol.

At MARR, the Therapeutic Community is truly the agent of change that brings about lasting recovery. Individuals struggling with substance use disorder enter our program devastated, lonely and isolated. Truly, addiction is the disease of isolation.

MARR provides critical support during the difficult first 90 days of recovery, when relapse chances are so high. Because we know that “time takes time”, we also provide extended recovery residences, aftercare groups, and powerful, ongoing alumni support. Clients receive what they need for as long as it is needed.

With industry trends of stays in treatment decreasing significantly, we continue to see the devastating effects of abbreviated care-relapse, overdose, and death. At MARR, we give our clients the time and tools to develop the life skills needed for healthy functioning in sobriety and society.

Currently people with a substance use disorder often tragically cycle through program after program, barely having the chance to detox before they are sent home. At MARR, we offer the precious gift of time. Our program completion rates and alumni involvement demonstrate success. Don’t we all deserve the chance to recover?

    Excellent, concise summary of the difference extended recovery makes. I lived in a MARR 3/4 way house for over 2 years. That may seem excessive but as a very immature young man with few life skills and no personal boundaries I had a lot to learn. I credit my time at MARR for helping create a life founded in integrity, accountability and recovery.
