Substance use disorder extends beyond the individual. Families need recovery too.

For Families

Substance use disorder affects family members and loved ones, too. Royal Life Centers at Puget Sound offers many resources to families to answer questions and ease concerns, and our clinical staff prioritizes communication with approved family members.

During our residential and detox programs, guests are encouraged to focus on their recovery. Families can rest assured knowing that their loved one is in a comfortable environment with access to world-class medical care. Our therapists and case management team work diligently to ease tensions and help resolve family conflicts. Also, for guests who plan on returning home following treatment, we have Alumni meetings and events you may choose to participate in. We are dedicated to setting our guests up for success. We want to see all of our guests lead happy, meaningful, and successful lives in sobriety. Because We Care.
