Michigan Association of Recovery Residences, Inc.

The Michigan Association of Recovery Residences, Inc. (MARR) located in Holland, is the Michigan statewide affiliate of the National Alliance for Recovery Residences, Inc. (NARR).  MARR was founded by the late Kevin O'Hare, also a founder of NARR, in 2008 and became recognized as one of the first NARR Affiliates in 2011. The term “Recovery Residence” was adopted by NARR and refers to standards-based recovery housing. As the sole Michigan NARR Affiliate, MARR certifies provider compliance with the NARR standards and code of ethics.

Dearborn is a city in Wayne County in the U.S. state of Michigan. At the 2020 census, it had a population of 109,976. Dearborn is the seventh most-populated city in Michigan and is home to the largest Muslim population in the United States per capita. It also is home to the largest mosque in the United States. Henry Ford was born on a farm and later established an estate in Dearborn, as well as his River Rouge Complex, the largest factory of his Ford empire. He developed mass production of automobiles, and based the world headquarters of the Ford Motor Company here. The city has a campus of the University of Michigan as well as Henry Ford College. The Henry Ford, the United States' largest indoor-outdoor historic museum complex and Metro Detroit's leading tourist attraction, is located here.
