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 Women’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, women are able to focus entirely on their recovery and dedicate all of their efforts to getting well.

Terrible experience. The housing is filthy and run down. They limit your budget so severely that you can’t afford to buy nutritious food. It’s impossible to exercise if you can’t find a “buddy...


My recovery journey began at Marr, and I could not be more thankful. From the moment I walked through the doors for my evaluation, until the day I completed the program, I was treated with respect. I ...


This facility is run like a business. Some of the counselors play mind games and they don’t care about your general well-being; they enjoy the power trip. One counselor saw me on my way out and blat...


Staff credentials were strong. Lack of freedom and integration with society, no cell phones, computers, no outside contact Not cost effective, very strict rules, good staff, good accommodations.


Activity and therapy were good...Too much freedom It's an overall good facility. Anyone who goes should stay a year or more.

I do not recommend this facility. My daughter attended and the communication between the counsellors and the family ( who generally are the news paying the steep fees) is very poor. Disappointing.


It was overall good facility, but could have offered more holistic options.


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


Too lenient. They allow the patient to dictate the treatment. This facility used to be very good. I do not understand how my niece was able to manipulate them.


The site offered our family the opportunity to be involved with group therapy with our daughter.


My niece would not follow the rules of the facility, and they did not want her to stay because of that. They won't put up with her attempts to charm them or maliciously make them do her bidding. There...


This is a minimum 90 day residential program with daily classes and meetings required,custom counseling and scheduled appointments with appropriate MD's! Also retraining from beginning to end for reen...

Areas of Focus
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.


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.
