Therapy at Royal Life Centers

At Royal Life Centers, we take a holistic approach to addiction treatment, using a blend of traditional and alternative methods. Our biopsychosocial and spiritual model targets your mind, body, and spirit. In doing so, we provide holistic, individualized treatment to effectively treat substance abuse and mental health conditions from all angles. Royal’s therapeutic programming also engages you in a customized treatment plan. This allows you to make your own discoveries about what supports recovery and gain the skills needed to build lasting sobriety.

Our Intensive Therapies


Our therapists work one-on-one with our guests in a safe, open environment. Individual therapy sessions can help you overcome:

We also address other underlying issues that may contribute to mental illness and substance use.


Facilitated by our addiction therapists, groups are extremely effective in treating substance use disorder. In a group setting, you can:

We believe in the power of a group model to bring about positive change and foster accountability. 


We offer adventure therapies for guests, including kayaking, rock climbing, and hiking. These activities promote physical wellness and encourage guests to develop regular exercise patterns. Adventure therapy is a goal-focused form of therapeutics that incorporates physical activities. It combines guests’ active involvement in treatment with the restorative power of nature and exercise.


Royal Life Centers offers a few types of behavioral therapy. We offer cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and rational emotive behavior therapy (REBT). Behavioral therapies take an approach that encourages new modes of thinking. We rely on behavioral therapies because they are extensively backed by research proving their effectiveness.


Royal Life Centers offers several guest-centered expressive and experiential groups to promote healing through creativity. As an alternative to more traditional therapy, these approaches inspire a mind-body connection.


We offer activities because they tend to be more hands-on learning experiences. Our methods work by exercising different parts of the brain.


As part of our aftercare program, we encourage guests to participate in equine-assisted therapy (EAT). Sessions may involve petting, grooming, feeding, caring for, or leading horses.


Equine therapy promotes emotional growth, by allowing guests to be more in tune with their actions and emotions. Working with horses also increases cognitive skills and promotes healing.

Our Holistic Therapeutic Approach

Upon arrival at Royal Life Centers, you’re assigned a primary therapist who will help you with all your needs while here. To do so, therapists conduct a thorough biopsychosocial and spiritual assessment to determine the most effective means of treatment for your individual situation. Together you will develop an Individual Service Plan (ISP), designed to identify aspects of your life that you’d like to change or improve. 

Our holistic therapy model is based on the idea that transformative, lasting change comes from focusing on all aspects of yourself. Royal’s approach seeks to improve mental, physical, and spiritual health.

Our addiction therapists structure sessions and pick activities and topics through the lens of several therapeutic methods, such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). In general, cognitive behavioral therapy is a form of problem-solving psychotherapy. For this reason, CBT is one of our key therapeutic offerings. 

According to the APA, CBT treatment may include:

In essence, CBT is based on the notion that how you interpret a situation, rather than the situation itself,  influences your emotions. We believe that recognizing and managing these perceptions is key to changing thinking and behavioral patterns and a necessary skill in order to create a fulfilling life in recovery,

The Therapeutic Process

During treatment, a guest’s first one-on-one meeting with their primary therapist involves a mental health evaluation. In doing so, their addiction therapist can better understand the guest’s unique circumstances, needs, and goals. After this meeting, the guest and their therapist will work together to create an individual treatment plan.

Alternatively, group therapy will be structured differently than individual therapy to better accommodate a group setting, but will also operate from a holistic model.

For example, our groups may include:

  • Relapse prevention
  • Self-worth
  • Goal-setting
  • Finding your identity in recovery
  • Processing feelings and emotions

We also incorporate movement/activity, adventure, and equine-assisted therapy— a form of biofeedback therapy that helps guests to develop self-awareness and other skills by interacting with horses— into our therapy program. In addition, guests can participate in yoga, kayaking, and team-building activities, as well as engage with music, art, and journaling for therapeutic purposes.

Our hope at Royal Life Centers is that our varied therapy regimen will give you the skills and tools you need to self-manage your emotions and live your healthiest, happiest life, long after you leave our care.

Change your life with one call.
You can do it, We can help.
