Girlfriend in sober living, what should i expect?

Hello everyone,
This is my first time in here. I recently discovered that my girlfriend of 4 months has been hiding a heroin addiction and went into detox for 11 days. she is now in a sober living facility. In the course of 4 months, we spent every day talking, skyping, on the phone. we never went a day without talking at least once a day. (long distance relationship) But now, things have changed dramatically and it is making me anxious. I understand she is emerging herself in meetings etc, and it takes up most of her time. But i feel like she isnt making any effort to keep me posted, or just check in with me and chat, even if its for a few minutes. i begin to feel resentful when she says shes going to call me in the morning, or send me a msg when shes free and i do not hear from her for a whole day. I am sure there has to be at least one moment during her day where she can take a few minutes to check her phone and reply. that is all i ask. is that too much to ask for? what should i be expecting, and any advice on how i can cope with all this new change? i know most of you will say, "get on with your life and focus on you and let her do what she needs to do" but going from always having contact to hardly extremely difficult to get adjusted to. any advice is greatly appreciated.
