Our Commitment to Family
Families are often on the front lines of substance use disorders. When a loved one enters into treatment, it can be a tremendous relief knowing that they are in a safe place. At Royal Life Centers we do everything we can to alleviate concerns that families might have while their loved ones are under our care. Staffed 24/7, our facilities ensure the safety and well-being of all of our guests. A safe, comfortable, and distraction-free environment is just the start of what we offer at Royal Life Centers.
From the second your loved one enters our care, they are in good hands. Guests receive quality addiction counseling from our team of specialists, along with a doctor-approved medical program. Comfortable living areas round out the guest experience at Royal Life Centers, with large bedrooms featuring flat-screen TVs and spacious common areas for connecting with roommates.
Most families will want to know how their loved one is doing while they are with us. During this phase of treatment at Royal Life Centers at Cascade Heights, guests are allowed access to their own personal cell phones allowing for direct contact with them. However, HIPAA laws prevent us from releasing information about a guest in any form without their prior written consent.
Known as a family disease, addiction affects the life of the substance abuser as well as the people around them. For this reason, we suggest families and friends take steps toward their own recovery. Many resources are available for the families of people with SUD including Al-Anon meetings as well as local support groups. To find a local meeting in your area, or learn more about family support groups, click on any of these links:
- Al-Anon Meetings – Support group for people whose lives have been affected by a loved one’s drinking.
- Nar-Anon Meetings – Support group for people whose lives have been affected by a loved one’s addiction.
- Families Anonymous – Support group in which people collaborate on ways to deal with their loved one’s addiction.
- Parents of Addicted Loved Ones – Support group in which parents help parents process their child’s addiction.
For more, you can visit the Royal Life Centers Facebook page for positive affirmations, addiction education, and access to our recovery community. We also have individual Facebook pages for each Royal Life Centers facility that can be found and followed by searching the facility’s name on Facebook’s directory.
How Can I Help My Loved One After Treatment?
When a loved one has left our care, families sometimes still have concerns. To alleviate these feelings, we offer free monthly drug testing cups to families of our graduates. To request a kit, just fill out the form at the bottom of this page.
After your loved one has completed treatment and reentered society, it can be difficult to give them space. Trust is incredibly important in life and in recovery. Let your loved one know how proud you are and let your words and actions show that you trust them. Also, encouraging family members in recovery to attend recovery meetings like AA or NA is a wonderful way to promote their recovery maintenance. Additionally, we have a Royal Alumni Facebook page to continue our relationship with RLC Alumni who have completed our program.
