Treatment Insights

Women and men are affected differently by addiction, which is why MARR offers gender-specific and gender-separate residential treatment programs for drug and alcohol addiction. The Men’s Recovery Center offers a safe and structured space for clients to begin the journey of recovery and uncover the core issues that contribute to substance use. In an environment that’s compassionate, nonjudgmental and stripped of distractions, men are able to focus entirely on their recovery and dedicate all of their efforts to getting well.

If you want real recovery, go to MARR!


This place is a clown show. If you go for a 96 hour evaluation there is a 100% guarantee that you will be recommended to stay. Why? Because the place is a cash cow for the owners. No one ever gets tol...


These guys are scumbags. Dishonorable, shameless liars. They will try to manipulate you by putting a guilt trip on you and they will constantly harangue you. Their facilities where you will stay are a...


Stay away. Horrible treatment center. No idea what there doing.


Do NOT recommend. On the positive side the counselors are well intended. On the negative side they have a 1930's mentality of treatment - guilt, separation from society, etc. They discourage talking t...

This is a terrible unsupervised rehab. Very unorganized and uncaring.


My son never received his fathers letters or mine. I was told by the resident manager that they got lost on his desk. I would never put someone that I love in this dreadful place. My son needed more ...


I'm 8 years clean 2/21/15, MARR saved my life and I'm still connected there. They teach you to connect and develop community. It was gender specific which was good for me. Downfall was physical plant.


Excellent treatment. Having more like this at a lower price might make a real difference for many addicts and families. While my son did well there, he could not financially afford to go back. He star...


MARR was an outstanding choice for sending our family member. They seem to be in it for all of the right reasons and really care about the clients recover, both during and after treatment.

Areas of Focus

The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.

Residential Treatment

Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.
