- Why Choose Rosewood
Developed by Rosewood's Chief Medical Officer, our Family Education Presentation contains useful information that will be explored and explained in great detail during family week.
To avoid distraction from our primary purpose, residents, staff and family are requested to dress appropriately, comfortable, casual and in good taste. Therefore, the following items are discouraged: bathing suits, halter-like tops, lack of shoes, short skirts, short shorts, see-through clothing, unbuttoned shirts, or tee shirts with suggestive or inappropriate messages. If you have any concerns, please consult the family therapist.
Directions to Wickenburg
From Sky Harbor Airport, take I-17 north toward Flagstaff. Go west on Carefree Highway, #74, for about 30 miles. When it comes to a dead end, turn right onto Highway 60 toward Wickenburg. Go west on Highway 60 toward Wickenburg until you reach a roundabout. Turn left at roundabout going under the "Welcome to Historic Wickenburg" sign onto US 60/Wickenburg Way. Proceed on Wickenburg Way approximately one mile until you reach 776 West Wickenburg Way (located on the right side of the street, about 1/4 block before Mariposa Rd.) Wickenburg, AZ 85390. Family Week will be held in the front building.
Visiting hours for Rosewood residents is allowed only during family week from 1:00pm to 3:00pm on Sundays on our campus. If you would like to visit with your family members on the Sunday before and/or after Family Program, please ask your family member to discuss this with her Primary Therapist to arrange a visitor’s pass.
The Treatment Team may authorize a Therapeutic Family pass on the Friday after Family Program. Friday pass hours are 12:00/12:30 to 3:00pm. Residents and family members may visit off-grounds, but only in the immediate Wickenburg area. For clinical reasons, residents will only be given Therapeutic Family passes to visit off-grounds with family members or friends who have completed the Family Program. Other restrictions and conditions may apply depending on the individual needs of each resident. Pass requests must be submitted by the resident to his or her Primary Therapist no later than Tuesday evening.

Family Week is an intensive 5-day program designed to make patients and their families aware of the dynamics of eating disorders.
Participants learn how family systems operate, and how eating disorders, addictions and other disorders negatively impact communications while learning to share thoughts and feelings in a non-judge- mental way. We believe that when families work together and support one another, dysfunctional patterns can be broken and inter- generational patterns arrested.
Family members are supported in making decisions on how to change these patterns into healthier means of interaction resulting in more functional relationships.
