Community Involvement

We are proud to show our community involvement, as we strive to always be of service to those around us. At Royal Life Centers, giving back to our communities is of the utmost importance to us.

Because We Care, we strongly encourage both guest and staff participation in our community betterment efforts and believe that doing so reinforces our mission— the guest always comes first— and values. Working toward a common goal helps to strengthen our foundation— building the safest, most effective approach to substance abuse treatment. As well as creating lasting change in the lives of our guests, their families, our staff, and our communities.

Further, we dedicate ourselves to fighting the stigma of substance use disorder. We believe that our community involvement helps to spread awareness and fight biases.
Because We Care, at Royal Life Centers, we are committed to being actively involved in our local communities. We believe it is essential to help others and one of the vital ways we can participate is to give back to members of the community who are in need of treatment services.


Elliot Bags

Our vessel for this contribution is through what we call “The Elliot Bag.” Upon Elliot’s untimely passing away from addiction, his mother too felt a sense of responsibility and purpose to help others. She vowed to lovingly fill bags with every day essentials and distribute them amongst the homeless. Upon hearing about her plight, Royal Life Centers began the “The Elliot Bag” program. These bags are prepared and handed out weekly to the homeless in the community by our current guests and staff members. Each bag contains the following items:

  • Water & Snacks (tuna, peanut butter crackers, granola bars, and cookies)
  • Toiletries (shampoo, razor, shaving cream, comb, deodorant, tooth brush, tooth paste, and feminine products)
  • Socks
  • Poncho
  • Blanket

Homeless Scholarships

Because We Care, in addition to honoring Elliot’s legacy, each time we hand out a bag, a former guest that has passed away is honored by writing their name on the bag. While handing out the bags in the community weekly, we eagerly search for individuals that are willing and desperately seeking treatment to become clean and sober. We always have 6 beds available to serve the homeless, 2 individuals at each center. Each time one individual completes treatment, we provide a new individual a scholarship. Once 6 new individuals have entered treatment in honor of a particular client, we change the name on the bag in remembrance of another guest that has passed. To date, thousands of bags have been handed out and several hundred homeless have received at least 101 days of treatment (detox, residential, aftercare). This is a FREE scholarship program in honor of those who have unfortunately lost their lives to addiction.

Street adoptions

We continue our community involvement in any way we can, which includes keeping our communities beautiful by adopting streets. Our centers “adopt” local streets to support community pride and civic responsibility, and our staff and guests volunteer to keep them free of litter and/or vandalism through regular cleanups.

Trash pick-up and community service

We also support our communities through litter cleanup and other acts of community service.
