Philosophy

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.

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.

No they are not family oriented whatsoever. Wont let you talk to or see your kids. My ex told me they made one man divorce his wife. And also his treatment plan included abandoning me and oyr kids. So far as to pay taxes ba k to the state to try to avoid responsibility. And the whe tone we were talking. He just got released infact. And is volunteering to avoid punishment . We were not the problem. Ever. But both our kids tried to harm themselves. So yeah if you are looking for passages of malibu , make bank and are a delta pilotwho wants to escape women, children and responsibility, this is the place you belong

I believe that MARR represents a total approach to recovery. The staff there are professional, caring and thorough in their dealings with clients and families. I have never experienced such a feeling of belonging or acceptance as I did at the Family Workshop! Our family counselor is very support, provides assistance and exhibits empathy toward us. I would advocate for such a powerful program to anyone who might be seeking help for an addiction. This truly is a great place to assist your loved ones in their walk to recovery. Thank you MARR staff for your outpouring of love, guidance and hope!

Excellent
One of the best treatment centers in the nation. I was a patient there 18 years ago, and received excellent and effective treatment. Over the years, MARR has remained true to sound recovery principles and since I work in the field, I have had the opportunity to compare it to many other treatment centers around the US. MARR is outstanding.

MARR saved my son\'s life. This is the best treatment facility I have ever known personally and professionally. I would use it again, and recommend MARR to any family member looking for help for either their loved one or themselves. Sometimes your loved one might not finish the program because he/she is not ready. It is truly the best program that is out there.

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 help. They were lazy and did not watch out for his safety.

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
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 started very young. He was able to process some of the issues he had never faced. I believe this helped. even though he is not in a good place now. It may prove to be a factor if he ever succeeds in staying clean and sober.
