In September of 2009, Frank Cid vowed to change the face of the substance abuse treatment industry. In an area of healthcare where quality care was not the standard, he began opening expertly staffed, state of the art facilities where those seeking recovery could heal and transform their lives with dignity. In 2010, he began expanding his endeavor to change the experience of treatment and recovery merging all of his facilities together thus creating Royal Life Centers which you can find in Florida, Arizona, Washington, and Indiana. It is here that guests can receive a comprehensive treatment program at every level of care…detox, residential treatment, inpatient treatment, outpatient treatment, aftercare, extended care, and sober living. Each of the Royal Life Centers facilities are based upon honesty, respect, and treating people with humanity. The guests and their care are always the top priority. Royal Life Centers takes no shortcuts when it comes to providing activities, resources, amenities, or any other type of support for our guests. They come first. They will always come first.
