Royal Life Detox prioritizes community involvement, to contribute to the communities we call home. At Royal Life Centers, we excel in our commitment to giving back to the communities that we serve. We not only help those in need, but we also see service work as a way to spread awareness about substance use disorder and reduce the stigma around it.
The idea for the Elliot project originated from a guest’s mother, who lost her son, Elliot B. to substance use disorder. Each individual bag, named to honor the life of a guest who has passed away, contains food, water, hygiene products, a blanket and a poncho. Royal Life Centers staff and guests distribute them to the homeless in the community every Saturday. The bags also award two homeless members of the community a scholarship to our program. After the sponsorships are given, another guest’s name will be representing the bags given out from that point, and so on and so forth. This way, each guest that has passed is honored by providing an opportunity for a better life to two individuals. The Elliot project is closely tied to our homeless sponsorship program, started by Royal Life Centers CEO, Frank Cid.
Homeless Sponsorships in the Community
Each month, every Royal Life Centers facility sponsors two homeless individuals for scholarships. This includes detox, 2-week or 28-day inpatient treatment, and 12-week aftercare. Substance abuse is a major problem among the homeless population, who has little to no access to treatment. For example, one study conducted by the Department of Housing and Urban Development found that almost half of the population that lives in homeless shelters or on the streets suffers from chronic substance abuse. We believe that everyone, regardless of their financial situation or social standing, deserves help for substance abuse; and we are devoted to providing the finest detox, inpatient, and outpatient programs to everyone who needs it.
