Approximately twice a year, an emotional, yet festive ceremony ‘Celebration of Memories and Hopes,” honors those who have completed the program.
Members of the Community and volunteers share meals, recreational events, retreats, and community outreach projects. Residents have joined the parish of All Saints’ Church in building houses for Habitat for Humanity.
The residents of the Community take part in a weekly Insight Night which introduces them to persons from all segments of the Atlanta community. The purpose of Insight Night is to reintegrate Community residents into the broader society of Atlantans at work, at play, in the political realm, and in the arts.

History of Talbott’s Addiction Treatment Programs

For thirty eight years Talbott Recovery has been dedicated to delivering the highest quality addiction treatment services available. Originally the Talbott Recovery program was primarily designed to treat healthcare professionals (physicians, pharmacists, nurses) earning Talbott Recovery a national reputation as: “the place where healers come to be healed.” During those three decades alcohol and drug rehab program services were expanded and offered to a full range of adults (18 years and older) and now includes a second specialty program designed to address the unique issues and recovery challenges faced by young adults (18 to 25 years).

From the outset our alcohol recovery center was recognized as a leader in the development of treatment techniques for alcoholic and chemically dependent patients. In large part this was due to the innovative work of Talbott Recovery co-founder, Dr. G. Douglas Talbott. During his tenure as Medical Director, Dr. Talbott developed pioneering treatment features like Talbott Recovery Mirror Image, Extended Therapeutic Leaves and our Alumni Return Visit Program. After numerous other drug and alcohol recovery centers adopted these techniques Talbott Recovery became known as a program that was: “often copied but never equaled.” In the process Dr. Talbott became an icon in the field of addiction medicine. He was instrumental in the creation of the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) and the International Association of Addiction Medicine (ISAM) and served as president of both organizations.

The Talbott Recovery tradition of excellence continues today. In 2006 Talbott Recovery was awarded the prestigious James W. West, M.D. Quality Improvement Award by the National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers (NAATP). At Talbott Recovery we are committed to providing the finest in alcohol and drug rehab programs and services available anywhere in the world to assist you and your families to build quality recovery one day at a time.

The founders of ARC believe that in order for the treatment of addiction to be effective it must be holistic. In addition to the treatment of the primary illness of chemical dependency or substance abuse it must also address the psychological and social behaviors, which precipitate substance abuse and are exacerbated by prolonged, chronic use. The overt manifestation of addiction, is characterized not only by compulsive use of mind altering and/or mood changing chemicals but is also associated with other self destructive interpersonal and interpersonal patterns of behavior. Long-term recovery is dependent upon changing these self-destructive behaviors.

Addiction is progressive. Left untreated, and addict’s physical and psychological dependence upon their drug of choice continues to escalate. The negative impact upon an individual’s physical and mental health increases as substance abuse escalates. The potential outcome of untreated addiction is incarceration, impairment of physical and/or mental health and in extreme cases, death.

Addiction is chronic in nature. The best outcome a client may hope for is remission. Attempts to return to a "controlled” or “recreational” use of any mind altering and/or mood changing substances will reactivate the compulsion to use and bring about a return to behavior patterns that existed prior to treatment. The onset of symptoms returns more rapidly than when the behavior was first acquired. The belief in total abstinence from any mind altering or mood changing substance is the foundation of the ARC philosophy.

ARC holds the belief that addiction is treatable providing the addict is willing to work a daily recovery program. It is further believed that treatment of an addict’s family and significant others enhances the probability of long-term recovery and reintegration into the family structure and community.

Left untreated, addiction is believed to be a terminal illness. Death may occur from primary physiological symptoms of alcohol or drug use (e.g., cirrhosis of the liver) or the secondary effects (e.g., cardiovascular disease) Death may also be the result of alcohol and drug related accidents or suicides. Additionally, there are affective implications in long term, untreated addiction. Feelings of guilt, shame, and unworthiness lead to social isolation and failure of interpersonal relationships.

Addiction impairs the ability of the client to delay the need for gratification and to interact appropriately with others. Decisions are made based on the need for immediate gratification. These decisions are usually self-serving and self-centered, indicating a lack of or an arrested spiritual development.
Mission Statement

It is the vision of the founders of Alpha Recovery Centers, Inc. (ARC) to provide quality, effective, residential and outpatient substance abuse treatment, at an affordable cost to the client, while maintaining integrity with other treatment professionals and the criminal justice system.

Parental Drinking Stunts Brain Growth in Alcoholic Kids, Study Suggests

JoinTogether.org

Friday, February 23, 2007 Alcohol-dependent individuals with a family history of alcoholism or problem drinking exhibited reduced brain growth compared to alcohol-dependent people with no family history of alcohol problems, according to new research from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA).

Researchers said the findings showed that alcohol-related brain damage can be caused not only by heavy drinking but also genetics and environmental factors. "Our study is the first to demonstrate that brain size among alcohol-dependent individuals with a family history of alcoholism is reduced even before the onset of alcohol dependence," said study lead author Jodi Gilman of Brown University.

The NIAAA researchers used MRI scans to measure brain volume. They found that the average intracranial volume of adult alcoholic children of alcoholics was 4 percent lower than that of adult alcoholics with no family history of alcohol problems.

The study was published in the online edition of the journal Biological Psychiatry.
