How We Help

What Is Royal Pines?


Royal Pines is a residential recovery center for men that utilizes a Christ-centered approach to overcoming life’s struggles that spans 13 to 15 weeks. At this rural facility, we offer clients the opportunity to break free from substance abuse and to rise and live again in Christ.

Our clinically-structured Active Recovery group process is grounded in the word of God. In addition, each client works individually with a NAADAC certified counselor (National Association of Alcohol and Drug Addiction Counselors) throughout the process. We not only address substance abuse, we also provide individuals with an educational curriculum through our Stewart Learning Center that includes adult basic education, GED preparation and workplace skill sets as well as training for accredited short-term certificates, industry-based certifications, and even college enrollment.

Our mission is to transform adults directly affected by homelessness, poverty-thinking, and/or addiction, into those who lead healthy, self-sufficient, and productive lives for the glory of God.

Active Recovery

Active Recovery


Active Recovery teaches clients to battle unhealthy compulsions, develop a future story and make value-based decisions. This program treats both substance abuse and poverty by leading people beyond rescue and to fulfillment. Once an individual is drug free and has his needs met, they are then free to work on developing a better life.

Active Recovery focuses on six core principles:

  • Understanding Addiction: learning how the brain equates drug use with survival and chains us to our habits.
  • Dissecting Motivation: discovering which motivators lead to healthy outcomes and which do not.
  • Creating a Life Plan: developing a genuine, personal plan for physical, spiritual, mental, vocational and social health.
  • Identifying Values: learning how to differentiate universal and practical values and use them as a tool to direct our actions.
  • Value-based Decisions: uncovering individual, practical values to direct decisions. Through practice we develop habits in decision-making that take us to a place of fulfillment.
  • Emotional Maturity: identifying the perceptions which feed negative feelings allows one to recognize barriers to healthier emotions.
