Nutrition is an integral part of both the detox and residential programs at Royal Life Centers at Puget Sound. Those who are overcoming a substance use disorder require a specific, restorative diet that is both nourishing and satisfying.

Our chef prepares three mouthwatering meals a day for our detox and residential programs. Our spacious, open kitchen is always stocked with premium snacks, to which guests have 24/7 access. We encourage guests to eat whenever they feel like it, and our chef is receptive to the needs of those in early recovery.
