Therapy at Royal Life Centers

At Royal Life Centers, we take a holistic approach to therapy. Our biopsychosocial/spiritual model targets mind, body, and spirit to effectively treat substance abuse at all levels, and our therapy programming— group, individual, adventure, activity/movement, and equine— engages guests in their customized treatment plans, so they might make their own discoveries, be a part of their recovery in new ways, and gain the skills needed to build lasting sobriety.

Individual Therapy

Our therapists work one-on-one with our guests in a safe, open environment. Guests overcome personal obstacles, negative feelings, dysfunctional emotions, low self-esteem, past traumas, and poor coping mechanisms. We also address other underlying issues that may contribute to their substance use disorder and/or associated mental health disorders.

Group Therapy

We believe in the power of group therapy to bring about positive change in the lives of our guests. Facilitated by our addiction therapists, group therapy at Royal Life Centers is extremely effective in treating substance use disorder. A group setting creates a support network, while guests help one another to come up with solutions and hold each other accountable.

Adventure Therapy

We offer two different adventure therapies for guests: kayaking and ropes courses. These activities promote physical wellness and encourages guests to develop regular exercise patterns. Adventure therapy is a goal-focused form of therapy. It combines guests’ active involvement in their own treatment with the restorative power of nature and exercise.

Activity Therapy

Royal Life Centers offers several guest-centered experiential and expressive therapies to guests to promote healing through creativity. As an alternative to more traditional therapy, these approaches encourage new modes of thinking.

We use activity therapies because they tend to be more hands-on. Our methods work by exercising different parts of the brain.

Behavioral Therapy

Royal Life Centers offers two types of behavioral therapy. The behavioral therapies we provide include: cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT). These behavioral therapies promote an approach that encourages new modes of thinking. We use behavioral therapies because they are extensively backed by research proving their effectiveness.

Equine Therapy

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 Unique Approach

Upon arrival at Royal Life Centers, guests are assigned a primary therapist who will assist them with all needs while they are in our care. Therapists will conduct a thorough biopsychosocial and spiritual assessment of each guest to determine the most effective means of treatment. With the help of their therapist, guests will develop an Individual Service Plan (ISP), designed to identify aspects of their lives that they'd like to change or improve. Our holistic therapy model is based on the idea that transformative, lasting change comes from focusing on mental, physical, and spiritual health and well-being.

Our addiction therapists structure sessions and pick activities and topics through the lens of several therapeutic methods, such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), a form of present- and problem solving-oriented psychotherapy. Essentially, this form of therapy is based on the notion that it is situational perception, rather than the situation itself, that influences emotions— recognizing and managing these perceptions is key to changing thinking and behavioral patterns. CBT is conducive to progress in fewer sessions and is considered low-risk, making it a good match for those with sensitive disorders like that of substance use, and mental health disorders such as depression and anxiety that may accompany it.

According to the APA, 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 Therapeutic Process

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 their ISP. Group therapy will be structured differently than individual therapy to better accommodate a group setting but will also operate from a holistic model. Group may focus on topics such as relapse prevention, self-worth, goal-setting, finding identity in recovery, and 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. Guests can participate in yoga, kayaking, and team-building activities like ropes courses, 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 guests the skills and tools they need to self-manage their own emotions and live their healthiest, happiest lives, long after they leave our care.
