The MARS™ Project is a peer-initiated and peer-based recovery support project sponsored by the National Alliance of Medication-Assisted (NAMA) Recovery.
Thanks to the Albert Einstein College of Medicine for providing space and for being supportive of our efforts, the original MARS™ Community was launched in 2005 with funding from a SAMHSA RCSP grant.
In 2012, the Beyond MARS™ Training Institute was formed to replicate this model and implement MARS™ “satellite” programs across the United States.
The growing MARS™ Community currently includes seventeen programs across the United States and two programs in Haiphong, Vietnam. We offer a wide range of training and technical assistance services.
