Roselyn McGowan, RN
Chief Executive Officer
Roselyn McGowan RN, is the CEO and Co-Founder of Transitions Recovery Program in North Miami Beach, Florida. Roselyn has been an RN since 1976. In 1985, Roselyn and her late husband, Charlie McGowan, conceptualized and pioneered the first “Reality-Based” residential model of treatment in the State of Florida. This model emulates “real-world” living into the residential program to incorporate life and coping skills, helping to make the “transition” from residential treatment to real life less traumatic. This model gave inspiration to the company that she and her husband opened in the same year, Transitions Recovery Program, which has helped thousands of people overcome addiction, incorporate life and coping skills and move on to more productive, sober lives. At the same time, they opened a sober social clubhouse in North Miami Beach to allow 12 step meetings, education, and social events to take place in a safe sober environment. She served as chairperson of this non-profit facility for 10 years. Roselyn’s many accomplishments also include serving as Director of Nursing at several medical facilities and certified cardiac care nurse working in ICUs. For the state of New Hampshire, she developed and implemented the first social detox program which saved the local and state governments money and improved treatment outcomes.
