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.

Facility Highlights

  • Relapse Prevention
  • Anxiety & Depression
  • Anger Management

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.

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 told they dont need treatment. The facility preys on the weak and vulnerable. Go some where else if you dont want to waste your time and money
Popeye
    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 ratty maggot infested filth ridden apartment complex in a horrible part of town. Don't be take in by their propaganda and smiles.

      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 to the opposite gender because they subscribe to out dated genetic theories about substance abuse and want substance abuse sufferers to not reproduce (this is a form of eugenics which is cruel, not to mention out dated, bad science). I think some of the counselors are good intended people but they have just bad philosophy, bottom line. I attended there and did not get sober from a program that used guilt rather than positive reinforcement. I a sober now and have been for a while but only after I let go of 1930's thinking. I recommend do not go and if you have gone in the past or have a relative who has gone and they try to demand you for donations or more payments, ignore them. Well, I am sober now, I have healthy relationships, including romantic one, and no thanks to these guys. 'Nuff said.
