MARR - Men's Recovery Center

2801 Clearview Place, Atlanta, Georgia, 30340
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.

Specialization

  • 12-Step

    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.
