The dictionary defines recovery to mean a return to a normal state of health, mind, or strength; also defining recovery as the action or process of regaining possession of control of something stolen or lost. Royal Life Centers at The Haven knows that addiction steals time, moments, control, and happiness from you. Our goal is to use a holistic approach to treat the mind, body, and spirit of each guest so that they may return to health and gain back control in their life. Royal Life Centers at The Haven offers medical detox services that will restore your health by treating both the symptoms of withdrawal and your overall mental health with medication and intensive therapies. Our medical detoxification provides 24/7 medical supervision to ensure the safety and comfort of our guests.

Our detox process provides medical care and therapeutic care, to begin the work of your recovery process. Addiction recovery is more than just stabilizing your health, which is why our detox program incorporates individual therapy sessions and group therapy. Our detox treatments can be either a 4 or 8 day stay, depending on the condition and symptoms of our guest. Upon arrival to our medical detox center, guests are evaluated for their symptoms and assessed for any co-occuring disorders. Substance use disorder and alcohol use disorder can produce life threatening side effects if they are abruptly removed from the body, which is why our addiction treatment center offers direct medical supervision and medical practices that ensure the safety of each guest. Drug and alcohol withdrawal symptoms can be wildly uncomfortable, which is why we also treat withdrawal symptoms with optimal comfort in mind. No matter what drug was abused, we offer care in our drug and alcohol detox center.
