At Royal Life Centers, we take a holistic approach to therapy. Our biopsychosocial/spiritual model targets the mind, body, and spirit to effectively treat substance abuse. We offer group, individual, adventure, activity/movement, and equine therapies. The reason being, so guests can tailor their own recovery and gain the skills needed to build lasting sobriety.
Our unique approach
Upon arrival at Royal Life Centers, guests are assigned a primary therapist. Their primary therapist will assist them with all needs while they are in our care. Therapists will conduct a biopsychosocial and spiritual assessment of each guest to determine the most effective means of treatment. Afterward, guests will develop an Individual Service Plan (ISP), with the help of their therapist. The ISP identifies aspects of their lives that they’d like to change or improve. Our holistic therapy model is based on the idea that lasting change comes from improving mental, physical, and spiritual health. Our addiction therapists structure sessions and pick topics using several therapeutic methods. An example is one of our behavioral therapies, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), a form of problem solving-oriented psychotherapy.
Essentially, this form of therapy is based on the notion that it is how we view a situation, rather than the situation itself, that influences emotions. Thus, recognizing and managing these perceptions is key to changing thinking and behavioral patterns. CBT tends to produce more progress in fewer sessions and is considered low-risk. Therefore, making it a good match for those with disorders like that of substance use, and mental health disorders such as depression and anxiety.
According to the APA (American Psychological Association), CBT treatment may include learning to recognize and evaluate distorted thinking, utilizing problem-solving skills in difficult situations, developing greater self-confidence, facing fears, and calming mind and body.
The Royal Life Center Approach
A guest’s first one-on-one meeting with their primary therapist will involve a brief intake, so our addiction therapist can better understand the guest and their unique circumstances, needs, and goals. After this meeting, the guest and their therapist will work together on the guest’s ISP. Group therapies have a different structure than individual therapy to better accommodate a group setting but it also works off of a holistic model. Group may discuss topics such as relapse prevention, goal-setting, finding identity in recovery, and processing feelings and emotions.
We also incorporate movement/activity, adventure, and equine-assisted therapies into our therapy program. Guests can participate in yoga, kayaking, and team-building activities like ropes courses. Additionally, music, art, and journaling for therapeutic purposes are available.
Our hope at Royal Life Centers is that our varied therapy regimen will give guests the skills and tools they need to manage their emotions. Thus, leading happy and healthy lives. Furthermore, we aim for guests to maintain these lifestyle changes long after leaving our care.
