Royal Life Centers provides world-class holistic addiction treatment. We are a dual-accredited, full-service drug and alcohol detox and treatment facility network committed to treating substance use disorders in the safest, most effective way possible— from detox to outpatient. We always put the guest first, hire only the most qualified staff, and maintain top-notch facilities.
Within our full continuum of care, Royal Life Centers treatment programs start with medical detox where drug and alcohol toxins are removed from the body. Following detox, residential inpatient treatment continues the therapeutic practices started in detox. Following residential inpatient, you work through levels of care that include partial hospitalization (PHP) and intensive outpatient programs (IOP). Once completed, you may continue treatment in our outpatient program (OP). Guests in aftercare and outpatient care can live in our sober living houses.
The length of treatment varies by individual. In general, detox services last 4 days or 8 days. Residential inpatient starts at 14 days. Our aftercare program extends for 12-weeks. Outpatient care is a customizable time frame. For this reason, guests can choose to be in outpatient for an undetermined amount of time, ranging from a couple of weeks up to one year.

At Royal Life Centers, we operate on a biopsychosocial/spiritual model. This means we collectively treat the mind, body, and spirit. Essentially, holistic treatment is the idea that multiple modalities of treatment are the most effective way to recover from drug and alcohol addiction. Our addiction treatment includes traditional and alternative approaches like individual therapy, group counseling, art therapy, yoga, mindfulness, and Native American healing traditions.
Because We Care, we do our best to accommodate special financial circumstances and offer financing. Please give us a call to go over possible payment options. If we can not accommodate your budget, we will find you a treatment provider that will.
Due to HIPAA laws, we cannot legally release any information about our guests unless they have provided us with written consent. Guests may ask for staff to make a “safe call” upon arrival to our detox facility, to assure family/loved ones that they have arrived safely. Because we are a closed facility, guests have limited phone access but are permitted one call per week (or more if approved by their primary therapist), to be approved and supervised by their therapist.
