Two phases, Three programs.

At Roswell Recovery, we offer two programs to best support our residences in all stages of recovery. Professional and executive programs are tailored to individual needs at discretion of the program director and will involve a mixture of the requirements below.

 
 

Phase 1
0-6 Months Abstinent

Accountability and structure is vital to recovery, especially in the first six months. Functional MRI brain scans prove that it takes four to six months for the addicted or alcoholic brain to even begin to function like a normal brain and up to 18 months to two years for the brain to fully function like a non-addicted brain. The tragic truth is that is just takes a long time to heal. Therefore, Phase 1 has more structure and accountability than Phase 2.
