Mission Statement

The mission of Marijuana Maintenance in Recovery is to develop a community of people who use medical cannabis as part of their recovery from substance dependence or abuse. We provide support through personal experiences, educational resources and peer support programs, while upholding a culture of inclusiveness and mutual respect.


Marijuana Maintenance in Recovery (MMR) is a group comprised of people dealing with substance-dependence/abuse and parties affiliated with, or interested in cannabis substitution as a form of harm-reduction therapy. Our intention is to help those who desire to stay abstinent from, or reduce their use of dangerous substances, by using medicinal cannabis as a replacement. We are an all-inclusive group that allows people using all types of recovery methods. Our goal is to remain a supportive structure that cultivates positivity and acceptance, and encourages healthy behaviors.

MMR is not an official program, but rather a community of people who have found cannabis to be extremely beneficial to their recoveries. We are thankful to have a diverse group with a variety of approaches to recovery. Some examples of other programs used in conjunction with marijuana maintenance are Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, HAMS: Harm Reduction for Alcohol, SMART Recovery, Moderation Management, Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT), Harm Reduction, personalized recoveries, and many more.

MMR asks all members to follow our guidelines at all times (click here for MMR Guidelines). MMR also asks everyone participating to continue to uphold a positive, respectful, and considerate attitude towards all.
